3D & 4D Printing Methods for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Personalised Drug Delivery
As the pharmaceutical industry evolves, so do the challenges associated with manufacturing drugs that are safe, effective, and accessible to all. Fortunately, new materials and manufacturing techniques are emerging that have the potential to address these challenges and teach old drugs new tricks. One such technique is 3D printing, or 3DP, a process that can be used to manufacture dosage forms that are tailor-made for specific patients. “Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Drug Delivery” is a comprehensive guide that explores the basics of each additive manufacturing method and current applications in pharmaceutics for each 3DP method.
This book, authored by Dimitrios Lamprou, covers everything from the fundamentals of AM technology to case studies and multiple-choice questions that reinforce important printing parameters and material considerations. It is specifically designed to target undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of drug delivery and pharmaceutics. The book presents a unique perspective on the integration of studies based upon the use of different AM technologies which is sure to add value to the students’ understanding of the subject matter.
The book is particularly useful when exploring the role of 3D printing in geriatric and pediatric formulations. In these areas, 3DP permits the fabrication of high degrees of complexity with great reproducibility, in a fast and cost-effective fashion, and offers a new paradigm for the direct manufacture of personalised dosage forms which can ultimately lead to improved patient outcomes. The book thus presents 3D printing as a revolutionary technique that challenges the traditional methods of drug delivery by offering new possibilities in terms of personalized medicine.
With the emergence of 3D printing technology, the field of drug delivery has never been more exciting. The book provides an in-depth analysis of the technique and its applications in pharmaceutics, which makes it a must-have guide for anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of 3DP and its implications for the future of drug delivery.
One of the unique aspects of the book is its focus on case studies, which make the content highly digestible to the reader. The studies provide practical examples that readers can apply in a free classroom setting. This feature is instrumental in fostering a deeper understanding of the subject matter as it allows students to practice what they have learned through real-life examples.
The book is published by Springer International Publishing and is available in English. The ISBNs for the book are 9783031341182 and 9783031341199, which make it easily accessible through multiple platforms. The paperback edition is expected to be released on September 1, 2023.
In conclusion, “Additive Manufacturing Technologies for Drug Delivery” is an essential guide for anyone interested in the field of 3D printing and its applications in pharmaceutics. It presents insightful perspectives on the subject matter, and the case studies and multiple-choice questions make it a perfect resource for students. By showcasing the diverse possibilities of 3DP in drug delivery, the book promotes the feeling of ordering the book and exploring the possibilities which are intriguing.
