FDA Approves First 3-D-Printed Drug

FDA Approves First 3-D-Printed Drug | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it

In a first, the Food and Drug Administration has given approval to a drug that is produced on a 3-D printer. The pill, produced by Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, treats seizures. It's expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2016.

NPR's Rob Stein reports for our Newscast unit:

"The drug is called Spritam and is designed to treat seizures in people suffering from epilepsy. It's a new version of a seizure medication that's been on the market for years.
"The new tablets are manufactured using 3-D printing, which creates objects by very precisely spewing out one layer of a substance on top of another. 3-D printing is being used to make all sorts of things these days.
"The FDA had previously approved medical devices made with 3-D printing. The company that makes Spritam says the 3-D-printed version of the drug allows it to dissolve more quickly, which makes it easier to swallow."
Another benefit of the process, says Aprecia, the drug's maker, is that it allows a high drug load — up to 1,000 mg — to be delivered in a single dose. The 3-D printing process creates a pill that has "a porous formulation that rapidly disintegrates with a sip of liquid," the company says.

Aprecia says it based its printing platform on technology that originated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

U-M will test 3D-printed, autonomous 'SmartCarts'

U-M will test 3D-printed, autonomous 'SmartCarts' | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it

ANN ARBOR—A fleet of autonomous "SmartCarts"—high-tech, 3D-printed, low-speed electric vehicles—could one day zip around the University of Michigan's North Campus, taking students, professors and staff to class, labs and offices while also serving as one of the first test beds for on-demand autonomous transit.

"Think Uber, but with low-speed, autonomous cars," said Edwin Olson, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science who leads the project. "The goal of SmartCarts is for us to begin understanding the challenges of a transportation-on-demand system built around autonomous cars."

In an early step toward that goal, U-M researchers today received a custom, 3D-printed vehicle from technology company Local Motors. The company unveiled both the low-speed vehicle and its first 3D-printed road-ready car at a press conference in Tempe, Ariz.

U-M's vehicle—one of three being built for university research—will arrive on U-M's campus next week. Over the next year, U-M researchers will develop autonomy capabilities and build a mobile phone interface users can use to request a ride. They'll test the vehicle at Mcity, the autonomous and connected vehicle test site that's operated by the Mobility Transformation Center, a public/private partnership headquartered at U-M.

"On this project, we're deliberately 'cheating' on the autonomy as much as we can—not because we can't build autonomous cars, but because we need a working test bed now so that we can begin to look at all of the other challenges of an on-demand system" Olson said.

Those other challenges include understanding passengers' preferences and expectations, coordinating the routes of a fleet of vehicles, and figuring out how to balance supply and demand.

"These factors—not just the self-driving technology—are critical to the economic viability and social acceptance of a full-scale transportation service," Olson said.

At Mcity and later on North Campus, researchers will experiment with methods to simplify the autonomy challenges that take advantage of the smaller scale of a campus. They could add landmarks to help the vehicles navigate, for example, or even paint a blue line on the asphalt for the carts to follow. These steps help make autonomy safe and cheap, but they're difficult to accomplish on a national scale, Olson said. Beyond college campuses, low-speed autonomous transit systems could be useful in places like corporate campuses, amusement parks, airports, assisted living communities and city centers.

Surgeons print out 3D body implant for spinal operation

Surgeons print out 3D body implant for spinal operation | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it
RICHARD GUILLIATTTHE AUSTRALIANAUGUST 15, 2015 12:00AM
Neurosurgeon Marc Coughlan.

Australian surgeons have cured a patient’s chronic spinal problem with a 3-D printed titanium implant in what could be a major breakthrough in the treatment of back pain and other orthopedic complaints.

The patient, 38-year-old Amanda Gorvin of the NSW central coast, says she is “100 per cent” free of chronic back pain since the custom im­plant was inserted four months ago to straighten her spine.

“I’ve got my life back,” said Ms Gorvin, who had become depressed after 30 years of pain from a back problem she had been told was inoperable.

Her neurosurgeon, Marc Coughlan, said the success of the operation — in which a small titanium implant was 3-D printed so it fitted exactly into the contours of a misshapen vertebra in Ms Gorvin’s spine — could have major implications for a wide range of surgical procedures.

“It does open up a different world,” Dr Coughlan said. “You could use this technology for implants in the neck, in the thoracic spine, in surgery on the knee and thigh. It points the way to a time when all surgical implants might be customised to fit the individual patient.”

The operation is the first of its kind in Australia and one of the first in the world. The implant was a collaboration between medical research organisation ProCRO and Melbourne prosthetics company Anatomics, which designed the implant with the help of scientists at RMIT University where the implant was created on an electron-beam “printer” that melted powdered titanium into complex shapes.

Dr Coughlan consulted US spinal surgeon Chet Sutterlin, who moved to Australia in 2011.

While surgeons in China and France reportedly have used the technology to create spinal implants, the technique is so new Dr Sutterlin could not find it in peer-reviewed literature.

He said Australia could be a world leader in the technology because regulatory approval for such “custom” devices was relatively quick and efficient here.

Surgeons 3D Print Models of Children’s Brains for Intensive Pediatric Surgeries

Surgeons 3D Print Models of Children’s Brains for Intensive Pediatric Surgeries | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it

While most of us have either been the patient undergoing a surgical procedure or a loved one waiting and worrying, few of us have had to be on the other side as the trained surgeon, who often bears the responsibility of performing numerous delicate procedures with lives in his hands on a daily basis.

Many of us are thrilled to hear about the innovations 3D printing offers to the medical world as people are saved with progressive implants and devices and quality of life is improved. 3D models are becoming more and more common not only for educating the patient on what is happening, but also for guiding surgeons in diagnosis as well as in treatment and the surgical process. Certain procedures may be completely new for a surgeon and while the 3D model is what he uses to study and practice on, it is probably the same 3D printed model that goes into the operating room with him and potentially shaves hours off the procedure, as well as plenty of stress.

3D Printing Helps Create LED Fixtures for U2 Stage | Stratasys

3D Printing Helps Create LED Fixtures for U2 Stage | Stratasys | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it

n April 2009, Tommy Voeten, President of 1212-Studio, was asked to help illuminate the fabric roof of the stages for rock band U2's upcoming international 360 Tour. The roof would become part of the famous LED video screen for the band. New York City-based 1212-Studio, Inc. is an award-winning product design company, specializing in custom design and innovation of LED illumination products for the architectural and entertainment markets. It was a perfect fit for the project.

The requirements were rigorous. The 360 Tour would contain three identical stages, each holding 36 orange pods, called polyps, on the roof. Each polyp would hold eight pieces of illuminating LED fixtures to light the roof fabric in millions of colors. A total of nearly one thousand custom fixtures had to be designed, manufactured and delivered within four weeks. To illuminate the double-curved fabric roof structure in full color, Voeten came up with an innovative optical, mechanical and thermal design solution which he called U2BE (pronounced you-tube).

Voeten, who had invested in a Dimension BST 1200es 3D Printer from Stratasys in 2007, knew he would use the printer to create the fixtures, and he had complete confidence that it would meet U2's design and time restrictions. "The Dimension is the best investment I've made in years," he said.

 

The most important test was the performance of the optical system as a completely assembled product, according to Voeten. "We needed to avoid unwanted shadows or an uneven light distribution," he said. "In addition, the fit and function of the units had to guarantee a fast, hassle-free assembly of nearly one thousand units in a matter of days, not weeks."

"The innovative LED illuminating fixture required proof of concept," said Voeten. "Optical and thermal simulation tools are fantastic for saving time and are incredibly accurate, but we still wanted to see the light distribution with our eyes. We wanted to hold a physical model in our hands before we started manufacturing."

The Dimension-produced functional prototype helped to demonstrate proof of concept to the other team members. Three days after the printer began creating the part, Voeten flew to the United Kingdom to meet the team for final approval. The next day, the design went into full production.

 

Dimension 3D Printers use FDM technology, a method of additive technology that works by putting down layers of thermoplastic materials to create a prototype. "Tommy has said that investing in FDM Technology was the best decision he has made for his company, as it enabled him to sell his ideas more efficiently, provide better proof of concepts, create functional prototypes and save money at the same time," said Gary Shears, Vice President, Stratasys Product Manager, Cimquest Inc. "The Dimension 3D Printer required little explaining. It pretty much sold itself."
