Abstract / Description

Three-dimensional printing (3DP) is an additive manufacturing process that can rapidly render 3D objects from computer aided design software by successively depositing polymeric materials layer by layer. A range of different 3D printing technologies are in current use, with the most prevalent methodology using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology due to a synergetic combination that merges economic and accuracy/resolution factors. In 2015, Spritam®, a solid pharmaceutical formulation which contains the anti-epileptic drug levetiracetam, became the first 3D printed medicine approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) leading to a raised interest in this type of technology so to revolutionise healthcare in the area of personalised medicines.
