Abstract

3 D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY: A NEW ERA IN MEDICINE

Sachin M. More*, U. N. Mahajan and Nitin H. Indurwade

ABSTRACT

Three dimensional printing may open up a whole new chapter of opportunities for pharmaceutical research and bio-technology applications. Three dimensional printing (3D) is a method to make three dimensional objects by fusing or depositing materials including plastic, metal, ceramics, powders, liquids or living cells in layers .There are a number of ways it could be used for manufacturing of drug dosage forms, supporting delivery, or helping to research cures. Several 3D printing technologies, including stereo lithography, deposition modelling, inkjet-based printing and selective laser sintering have been developed. Medical applications for 3D printing are expanding rapidly and are expected to revolutionize healt care. Medical uses for 3D printing, both actual and potential, can be organized into several broad categories, including: tissue and organ fabrication; creation of customized prosthetics, implants, and anatomical models; and pharmaceutical research regarding drug dosage forms, delivery, and discovery. The application of 3D printing in medicine can provide many benefits, including: the customization and personalization of medical products, drugs, and equipment; cost-effectiveness; increased productivity; the democratization of design and manufacturing; and enhanced collaboration. From above information we can conclude that, use of 3 D printing technology is new approach in Medicine. It has potential to change research dimensions of Medical Sciences.
