Personalized medications can be produced with high precision through 3D printing

Personalized medications based on a patient’s medical and biological profiles can be produced with high precision through 3D printing, according to a study presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions.

Traditional pre-formulated medicines have not allowed for customization that accounts for a patient’s weight, race, and kidney and liver functions. However, adjusting for these factors could be a new way of increasing effectiveness and reducing side effects, researchers explained.

3D Printing Ushers in New Era for the Pharmaceutical Industry

3D Printing Ushers in New Era for the Pharmaceutical Industry. Three-dimensional (3D)-printing technology is on track to change the way we make things and drug manufacturing is no exception. After more than two decades of research on the application of 3D printers in drug manufacturing, the FDA has approved for the very first time a drug formulation produced using 3D-printing technology. The approved drug, Spritam (levetiracetam), is a prescription medicine used as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of seizures in adults and children with epilepsy.
