Application of 3D printing technology in personalised therapies

3D printing technology consists in printing products layer by layer, depositing the materials according to the digital model designed by the computer design software. One of the characteristics of this technique is its precision, allowing the personalisation of the final product.
In the medical sector, the application of this technology is very advantageous not only in the production of medicines but also in the creation of medical devices and regenerative medicine therapies such as the one applied in TriAnkle for the recovery of ankle injuries with 3D personalised collagen and gelatine implants.
The book 3D Printing and Bioprinting for Pharmaceutical and Medical Applications, edited by José Luis Pedraz Muñoz, Laura Saenz del Burgo Martínez, Gustavo Puras Ochoa and Jon Zarate Sesma, all from the UPV/EHU, provides an overview of the applications, market and regulatory analysis of 3D printing technology. The publication includes the design of polymers and decellularised matrices for the development of bioinks, 3D modelling for the evaluation of drugs and 3D bioprinting for musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, central nervous system, ocular and skin applications.
