3D Printing for a Better Preclinical Cancer Model

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. […]

3D Printed Biomimetic Blood Brain Barrier Eliminates Need for Animal Testing

3D Printed Biomimetic Blood Brain Barrier Eliminates Need for Animal Testing

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) may sound like a rating system for avoiding horror movies, but in reality it is a semi-permeable membrane responsible for restricting and regulating the entry of neurotoxic compounds, diseases, and circulating blood into the brain. It exists as a defense mechanism to protect the brain from direct contact with damaging entities […]
