Researchers use 3D printed coatings to create personalized drug release profiles

Recommended Posts

A group of researchers from Greece and Italy have explored the use of 3D printing as a coating technology for customizing the release rate of drugs for patient-specific delivery.  Using semi-solid extrusion 3D printing technology to partially coat the tablet, the researchers set about tuning the release of two Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) within the […]

This is great concept. Currently pharmaceutical release is dictated chemically, but with 3D printing geometry can be added and used to control drug release. It is a whole new variable to work with.
