Making Pharmaceuticals

Synopsis

3D printing is expected to cause a paradigm shift in the way pharmaceuticals are prescribed, manufactured and dispensed. The differences in people based on their genetic composition, age, sex and other factors are well known and affect people’s response to treatments and thus reflecting the need for personalised medicines. Current manufacturing techniques are used for mass production of one-size-fits-all batches and do not allow for the flexible dose adjustments depending on patients’ needs. 3D printing offers an alternative platform, in which medicines can be compounded and dispensed according to the individual needs of patients, making treatments safer and more effective.
