3D Printing To Produce Human Organs For Transplant Patients

3d printer is ready to make another huge impact in the medical field, as we all know many people around the world has been dying due to lack of blood and organs, we would have saved millions of people in the past, if we had enough organs and blood, but things are changing, soon we will be having sufficient organs for transplant and it is possible only through 3d printing.

How 3D Printing Could End The Deadly Shortage Of Donor Organs

Three-dimensional printing has been used to make everything from pizza to prostheses, and now researchers are working on using the emerging technology to fabricate hearts, kidneys, and other vital human organs.

That would be very big news, as the number of people who desperately need an organ transplant far outstrips the number of donor organs available. On average, about 21 Americans die every day because a needed organ was unavailable.

Researchers are using these Philly-made „bioprinters“ to make hearts, stomachs

BioBots makes a device that 3D-prints living cells instead of plastic. The company, founded by Penn grads, is headed to the SXSW Accelerator in Austin next month.

Danny Cabrera was a senior at Penn when opportunity knocked.

It came in the form of Ricardo Solorzano, a recent Penn bioengineering grad who had done his first two years at Miami Dade College, the same state school that Cabrera had transferred from. They never ran into each other in Florida and first met at Penn a few years later. Solorzano had a prototype for a desktop bioprinter, a 3D printer that uses cells to build living tissue. Did Cabrera want to see it?

And lo, BioBots was born.

3D Printed Drug Delivery System Shows Promise in Countering Transplant Rejection

There has been rapid progression seen in the technology used to 3D print live human cells. Over the last four to five years alone we have seen the technology go from only a concept to having several valuable applications. In fact Organovo is already selling 3D printed human liver tissue to the pharmaceutical industry for drug toxicity testing, with their ultimate goal being the 3D printing of entire human organs for transplant.

Increasing the viability of bio-printing human cells

The rapid development of viable inkjet technology for highly specialised applications, such as printing human cells, continues to generate significant interest. If successful, the realisation of this technology for specialised biological applications, generally known as ‚biofabrication‘, has the potential to replace the long established (and often controversial) process of using animals for testing new drugs. However, there are many challenges to overcome to enable the successful production of a valve-based cell printer for the formation of human embryonic stem cell spheroid aggregates. For example, printing techniques need to be developed which are both controllable and less harmful to the process of preserving human cell tissue viability and functions.

Synthetisches DNA-Gel für den Druck künstlicher Organe entwickelt

Ein zweiteiliges wasserbasiertes Gel aus synthetischer DNA und Polypeptiden bringt den 3D-Biodrucker weiter in Richtung Druck von Organen für die Transplantation oder als Tiermodell. Dongsheng Liu (Tsinghua-Universität Peking) und Will Shu (Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh) und ihre Arbeitsgruppen sahen sich mit den Hauptschwierigkeiten konfrontiert, zum einen eine geeignete Matrix oder ein Gerüst zu finden, das die lebenden Zellen dreidimensional unterstützt, zum anderen, ein konsistentes Produkt herzustellen, das der Empfänger des Spenderorgans nicht wieder abstößt.

Can 3-D Printing of Living Tissue Speed Up Drug Development?

Small firm believes bioprinting of human tissue can lower the cost of testing new drugs

Every year, the pharmaceutical industry spends more than $50 billion on research and development. But the path to drug approval by the Food and Drug Administration is laden with abrupt failures in late-phase testing. Only one in 5,000 drugs will make it to market, according to one estimate.

One small biology company believes it has a solution to the pipeline problem: 3-D printing.

Will 3D printers, bioprinters change the future of surgery?

Bioprinted organs would not look like those studied in anatomy books

When an MRI revealed a golf ball-sized tumour growing in Pamela Shavaun Scott’s skull, the California psychotherapist turned to a 3D printer to help find the least invasive and risky way for doctors to extract it.

Her husband, Michael Balzer, the founder of a 3D printing service company, used her medical records to create a three-dimensional image of her brain on his computer and print a 3D model of it.
