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.

Using 3D Printing, MakerBot and Feinstein Institute for Medical Research Create Cartilage to Repair Tracheal Damage

Results are showcased at 51st Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons

San Diego, CA – Investigators at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have made a medical breakthrough using 3D printing on a MakerBot® Replicator® 2X Experimental 3D Printer to create cartilage designed for tracheal repair or replacement. The results were reported today at the 51st Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons in San Diego, in a presentation by Todd Goldstein, an investigator at the Feinstein Institute, part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System. This is a first for medical research where regular MakerBot PLA Filament was used to 3D print a custom tracheal scaffolding, which was combined with living cells to create a tracheal segment.

MakerBot Stories | A New Frontier in Tracheal Repair

Your trachea, or windpipe, connects the throat and lungs. Air comes in through the windpipe; carbon dioxide goes out.

If it is torn or diseased, surgeons have two ways to fix it. They can remove the damaged part and attach the healthy ends, but there’s only so much slack. Or they can extract some rib cartilage and graft it into the windpipe, which is also made of cartilage. Additional surgery has risks, however. So some patients can’t be helped.

A team of surgeons and scientists at the Feinstein Institute of Medical Research, the research branch of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, has grown cartilage on a 3D printed scaffolding, pointing the way to custom repairs for damaged and diseased tracheas, or windpipes. The cells grow on a scaffolding created from ordinary MakerBot PLA Filament on a MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer. “3D printing and tissue engineering have the potential to replace lots of different parts of the human body,” says Dr. Lee Smith, a pediatric otolargyngologist who participated in the research. “The potential for creating replacement parts is almost limitless.”

Japan researchers develop bio 3D printer to print bones, joints and human skin

It will surprise anyone in the 3D printing community to hear that the technology can be potentially life-saving; over the past year we’ve learned of numerous studies and scientific breakthroughs that could make 3D printed organs, blood vessels and skin tissue a reality over the next couple of years Just this week the Japanese government announced a whole round of investments aimed at developing 3D printable human organs.

A New Dimension – From body parts to the building blocks of organs, 3-D printing is the new frontier for health care.

When cancer researcher Rosalie Sears, PhD, clicks the print button, ink does not spray onto a page. Instead, actual human cells issue from different heads of her 3-D printer.

In a short while, she has before her a very small tumor — an exact replica of a patient’s cancerous growth. At that point, she and her colleagues can attack the printed copy with any number of cancer treatments.
