    Organovo (NYSE: ONVO) announced today that they entered into a multi-year research collaboration agreement with Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. (NYSE: MRK).

  • Scientists 3D Print Liver closest to Real one

    Scientists at University of California, San Diego, have successfully 3D Printed Human Liver model, almost resembling human liver with its hexagonal structure. With combination of liver cells and supporting cells, this model can help pharmaceutical companies to develop better treatment plans.

  • 3D Printed Organs vs The Black Market

    3D Printed Organs vs The Black Market

    3D Bioprinting is being used in laboratories to produce hearts, livers, kidneys, etc. and no doubt, will be printed in reality for organ transplantation in real patients. But this on the other side, has increased the risk of black market and the ways bad guys will be utilizing these 3D Printed Organs. Since these organs will be available for normal people easily, criminals will find ways to make it not so.

  • China Develop Better Method of 3D Printing Patient-Specific Liver Models

     Chinese Researchers develop Cheaper Precise Method of 3D Printing Patient Specific Liver Models

    A team of researchers led by Professor Cheng Shujie from Affiliated Hospital of Hebei University, China are unveiling precise 3D Printed Liver Models which have been 3D Printed using Stereolithography for lower costs & precision and can be used for aiding in surgeries. Using two high speed LCD-SLA 3D printers, the team was able to create detailed, life-sized liver model for approximately $80-$90.

  • Researchers Develop 3D Printed Liver Model for Accurate Drug Toxicity Testing

     Researchers develop 3D Printed Liver Model for Highly Accurate Drug Toxicity Testing System

    An international research team collaborated to 3D Print Simple Liver Model using bioprinted tissue to develop a more accurate drug toxicity testing system. The new advancement can construct vascularized tissue, which is then able to mimic drug administration in vivo in 3D bioprinted liver tissue. This new model will allow scientists to observe the in vivo effects of drug absorption without having to actually set up a real in vivo study.

  • Innovative 3D Printing With PVA Starts With Liver Stenting

    Innovative 3D Printing With PVA Starts With Liver Stenting

    Christen Boyer, a Bioprinting engineer and recent Postdoctoral Fellow at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, along with vascular cell biologist, tissue engineer, and professor at LSU Health Sciences Center, Steven Alexander; have developed a new technology to 3D Print Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) Medical Devices. The method generates biologically compatible 3D printing scaffolds that support cell engraftment because of the high level of protein binding, which is a result of the stabilization process. Working along with Hrishikesh Samant, a transplant surgeon at LSU Health, Boyer and Alexander came up with a novel crosslinked PVA (XL-PVA) 3D printed stent infused with collagen, human placental mesenchymal stem cells (PMSCs), and cholangiocytes. The customized living biliary stents have clinical applications in the setting of malignant and benign bile duct obstructions.
