Využití 3D tisku při přípravě a výrobě léků
Klíčová slova:3D tisk, léková forma, individualizace terapie, preklinický vývoj
3D printing is a rapidly growing technology. Besides its general industrial application, it is also applicable in manufacturing of dosage forms. Due to its inherent flexibility, it is predetermined to be used as an advantageous manufacturing tool in the clinical phases of the drug development and in the individualized pharmacotherapy. Properties of drug dosage forms, such as the size of the dose, the type of the release mechanism, the shape and colour, can easily be modified and the final form can be produced quickly in small batches. It is also possible to prepare dosage forms with properties unattainable by classic manufacturing.
