Cryo‐3D Printing of Hierarchically Porous Polyhydroxymethylene Scaffolds for Hard Tissue Regeneration

Macromolecular Materials and Engineering 2021 Volume 306, Issue 1, Article 2000541

High molecular weight polyhydroxymethylene (PHM) has a repeat unit identical to that of low molecular weight sugar alcohols and exhibits carbohydrate‐like properties. Herein, cryogenic extrusion‐based 3D printing is combined with a phase separation in water to fabricate hierarchically porous PHM scaffolds containing interconnected macro‐, micro‐, and nanopores. As PHM is infusible and insoluble in common solvents, its precursor polyvinylene carbonate (PVCA) dissolved in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is used to 3D print hierarchically porous PVCA scaffolds that are converted into PHM by hydrolysis without impairing the pore architectures. Similar to low‐temperature deposition manufacturing, the PVCA/DMSO freezes on a build platform at −78…

Investigation of semi-solid formulations for 3D printing of drugs after prolonged storage to mimic real-life applications

European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 2020 Volume 146, Article 105266

The implementation of tailor-made dosage forms is currently one of the biggest challenges in the health sector. Over the last years, different approaches have been introduced to provide an individual and precise dispensing of the appropriate dose of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). A more recent approach, which has been intensively researched in the last years, is 3D-printing of medicines. The aim of this work was to develop printing formulations free of organic solvents for a pressure-assisted microsyringe printing method (PAM), which should also be printable over several days of storage. Furthermore, the printed dosage forms should provide a sustained…
