3D Printing in Drug Delivery: Revolutionizing Medicine through Personalized Treatment


Jack Henningfield*

3D printing technology has rapidly advanced over the past decade and has found novel applications in various industries. In the field of medicine, 3D printing has emerged as a transformative tool in drug delivery. This article explores the principles, methods and applications of 3D printing in drug delivery systems. By fabricating personalized drug formulations and medical devices, 3D printing is revolutionizing the way medications are administered, enhancing patient compliance and improving therapeutic outcomes. The ability to create complex drug delivery systems tailored to individual patients holds tremendous potential in advancing personalized medicine and optimizing treatment strategies for various diseases. Drug delivery is a critical aspect of modern medicine, ensuring the targeted and efficient delivery of medications to patients. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, has opened new horizons in drug delivery, enabling the fabrication of customized drug formulations with precise dosages and release profiles. By combining pharmaceutical sciences with engineering capabilities, 3D printing allows for the creation of drug delivery systems that address patient-specific needs, enhancing treatment efficacy and patient comfort. FDM is one of the most common 3D printing techniques in drug delivery. It involves the deposition of thermoplastic material layer by layer to create drug-loaded matrices or drug-eluting filaments with controlled drug release rates.
