Biotechnology to the Rescue – From nanodrugs to organs made by 3-D printing, medical science’s inventions are changing lives.

Man-made organs

What if rather than using medicine or genes – or an organ donor – to treat a failing heart or liver, your doctor could simply replace those parts with organs that are nearly identical to the originals, made from your own cells? That dream is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Much of the revolution in regenerative medicine is being driven by 3-D printing, the use of specialized machines that can create tissue and organlike structures from a patient’s cells. Among the body parts now streaming from 3-D printers are blood vessels, livers and skin to heal wounds. At the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, researchers are using 3-D printing and other techniques to engineer more than 30 different replacement tissues and organs, including bladders, kidneys and, most recently, vaginas made from the cells of girls suffering from a rare genetic condition that causes reproductive organs to be underdeveloped.

Bio3D’s Incredible Bio-Printer – Can Affordably 3D Print Cells, Proteins, Antibodies, Bacteria & Plastic in One Session

Bio-Printing, a technology which has the potential to allow us to re-engineer the human body, has been making tremendous strides over the last three to four years. The possibilities that such a technology holds, to put an end to the tragic self-destruction that every human body will eventually go through, could one day change the way we deal with disease, injury, and aging.

3D bioprinting of tissues and organs

Additive manufacturing, otherwise known as three-dimensional (3D) printing, is driving major innovations in many areas, such as engineering, manufacturing, art, education and medicine. Recent advances have enabled 3D printing of biocompatible materials, cells and supporting components into complex 3D functional living tissues. 3D bioprinting is being applied to regenerative medicine to address the need for tissues and organs suitable for transplantation. Compared with non-biological printing, 3D bioprinting involves additional complexities, such as the choice of materials, cell types, growth and differentiation factors, and technical challenges related to the sensitivities of living cells and the construction of tissues. Addressing these complexities requires the integration of technologies from the fields of engineering, biomaterials science, cell biology, physics and medicine. 3D bioprinting has already been used for the generation and transplantation of several tissues, including multilayered skin, bone, vascular grafts, tracheal splints, heart tissue and cartilaginous structures. Other applications include developing high-throughput 3D-bioprinted tissue models for research, drug discovery and toxicology.

Researchers study about 3-D bioprinting to make organs for transplants

Printing whole new organs for transplants sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but the real-life budding technology could one day make actual kidneys, livers, hearts and other organs for patients who desperately need them. In the ACS journal Langmuir, scientists are reporting new understanding about the dynamics of 3-D bioprinting that takes them a step closer to realizing their goal of making working tissues and organs on-demand.

Want a new organ? Press print – An introduction to the future of 3-D bioprinting

You have probably heard so much about 3-D printing that you know more about it than your own mother. You are also probably aware that 3-D printing is already being used to print prosthetic limbs and make patient-specific models. However what might have slipped under your radar is the very disruptive sub-industry of 3-D printing, bioprinting, We aim to rectify this situation by covering in the next 8 minutes:

RegenHU Is Close to Launching the First Commercial 3D Printed Synthetic Bone Implant

Lately there has been a lot of talk — and writing — about breakthroughs in 3D bioprinting. I know, I have covered a lot of it myself. The thing is, while complex 3D printed organs are still many years away, there already are companies that have commercially released both 3D bioprintiners and bioink products. One of these is Swiss based RegenHU (which stands for Regeneration HUman) and its product line up is quite impressive.

Postech’s Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Lab Is Leading the 3D Biofabrication Charge

I know I just wrote that functioning 3D printing organs are still very far down the road but that does not at all mean that top notch scientists are not already working on it, to define the procedures that will one day allow us to 3D biofabricate them. If you thought 3D printing technologies were varied and somewhat confusing, that is nothing compared to 3D bioprinting technologies and I have never heard someone speak with such an in-depth comprehension of them as Dr Dong-Woo Cho from Postech University in South Korea.
