3D Printing Process Could Help Treat Incurable Diseases

3D CAD ServicesWe are back with more news in the world of 3D printing. It’s amazing how this industry is progressing! We are excited to report to you on the latest information concerning this printing technology and how it might be able to treat incurable diseases in the future!

That’s right, according to scicasts.com, a team of Binghamton University researchers are creating a 3-D printing process to build implantable tissues and organs to treat otherwise incurable diseases. Biomedical engineering professors Kaiming Ye and Sha Jin are focusing on potential diabetes treatment options by trying to “grow” a functioning three-dimensional model of a pancreas and creating new cells that produce insulin.

Why can’t we grow these tissues and organs in a petri dish, as we would other cells? Unfortunately, the building blocks of life are 2D. In this case, 3D cells are needed to ensure the cells mimic human organs in the proper way.

A few steps must be taken before a 3D model of a pancreas or any other part of the anatomy can be created, according to scicasts.com. The website states that, first, the printed organ must be alive. To address this, Jin’s lab created a vascular system with vessels that pump blood, sending oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Secondly, scientists are still looking for ways to produce pure islet cells. Jin’s lab is working on solving this medical dilemma by using cells that can differentiate themselves into any cell type in the body. These cells are known as “pluripotent stem cells” and are believed to have the capability to become islet cells.

3D Printing Personalized Implants

In other news, a new medical breakthrough that concerns 3D printing implants personalized to the person’s needs is saving lives. Three babies were saved recently when airway stints were created to allow them to breathe. They weren’t able to to breathe alone, as they were born with tracheobronchomalacia. This is an incurable disorder that causes the windpipe to collapse at birth.

Though these devices were given an medical emergency exemption, they’ve not been approved by U.S. regulators yet. The plan is to continue developing the technology, in hopes that they will someday save lives all over the world. This is an exciting new development that we will continue to follow. If you’re interested in learning more about 3D printing organs and other medical devices, be sure to visit back with us in the future!
