On Demand manufacturing of oral dosage forms: A focus on multi-material and FDM 3D printing – Presented by Mohamed Alhnan, King’s College London, at the 3D Medical Conference, which takes place on January 30-31, 2019, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Personalised dosing is an upcoming and promising approach in drug therapy that ensures doses are tailored to an individual patient’s needs and preferences.

This can reduce the incidence of side effects and risk of overdose as pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic factors are able to be considered along with the age and weight of the patient. Over the years, individualising liquid oral dosage forms e.g. solutions and suspensions have been carried out by a variety of simple dosing aids e.g. calibrated spoons, droppers or syringes. Although these methods provided a low-cost solution, they were however associated with human errors during dosing.
