3D printing could open up a wealth of opportunities for pharmaceutical research and application, including personalized drug dosing, novel dosage forms, improved formulations and more complex drug release profiles, meaning a pharmacist could potentially in the future immediately 3D print the required dosage, rather than patients taking half a pill, or pills could be developed that are more easy for children or the elderly to swallow. This channel showcases and discusses the latest advances and approvals in additive manufacturing of printed pharmaceuticals, including vaccines and oral drugs.
