Researchers 3D Print Tissue That Mimics Human Bile Duct

Researchers 3D Print Tissue That Mimics Human Bile Duct

A bile duct plays a crucial role in the body, carrying bile from the liver to the intestine to facilitate digestion. Cancer of the bile duct has an alarmingly low survival rate, and treatment requires that the disease be caught early enough for the affected part of the bile duct to be removed. But there’s […]

Novel 3D Bioprinting Technique Offers Hope for Degenerative Diseases

Novel 3D Bioprinting Technique Offers Hope for Degenerative Diseases

So many conditions can affect people as they age, and when we think of degenerative diseases, we often think of bone-related conditions like osteoporosis and arthritis, or neurological disorders like Parkinson’s. But degenerative conditions of the muscles and tendons are just as debilitating. As the aging population grows, treatments for these types of diseases are […]

3D Bioprinted Brain Tumors Help Researchers Gain Ground on Aggressive Form of Cancer

3D Bioprinted Brain Tumors Help Researchers Gain Ground on Aggressive Form of Cancer

One of the most aggressive forms of brain tumor is the high-grade glioma, or GBM. Patients diagnosed with these tumors have a median survival time of about 15 months, or just five to seven months for recurrent tumors. These grim statistics are thought to be the result of glioma stem cells, so researchers are looking […]

Researchers 3D Print Platelets for Faster Healing

Researchers 3D Print Platelets for Faster Healing

Platelets play an important role in the bloodstream – if there’s an injury, the platelets are drawn to the site, where they clot and stop the bleeding. They also release growth factors that help repair soft tissue such as skin, muscle, tendons and blood vessels, as well as “recruiting” other cells to help start the […]

3D Printing for a Better Preclinical Cancer Model

Peritoneal cancer is a rare form of cancer that can be especially deadly as it frequently isn’t diagnosed until it’s in an advanced stage. Even as treatments for the cancer advance, there are still limits, such as poor tissue penetration with chemotherapy. In addition, current preclinical models haven’t managed to precisely reproduce the disease conditions. […]
