Russian 3D-bioprinted thyroid gland implant proves functional in mice

A Moscow laboratory has conducted the first successful organ translation using a unique Russian 3D-printing technology. The breakthrough could potentially help millions suffering from thyroid disorders – and paves the way for printing other human organs.

RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO 3D PRINT WORKING THYROID GLANDS FOR MICE

The budding industry of 3D bioprinting took a massive leap forward last week after a Russian bioprinting company announced a series of successful tests on a 3D-printed mouse thyroid. Speaking at the Biofabrication 2015 conference in Utrecht, Netherlands, 3D Bioprinting Solutions head of research Vladimir Mironov officially presented the highly anticipated results, shedding light on the company’s production process.

3D Bioprinting Solutions Succeeds in Performing the First 3D Printed Thyroid Transplant

In November of 2014, a Russian company by the name of 3D Bioprinting Solutions made a bold claim: they intended to produce the first 3D printed animal thyroid gland by March 2015. In March, they delivered on their claim, right on schedule, with their announcement that they had successfully printed a thyroid gland for a mouse. At that time, the company had not yet attempted to transplant the gland into a living mouse.

Russian scientists use first-ever 3D printed thyroid gland in successful transplant surgery

Last March, we wrote about Professor Vladimir Mironov’s 3D printed medical breakthrough: the world’s first 3D printed transplantable organ, to be used on a mouse. This week, it was reported that not only did the mouse thyroid transplant surgery go relatively smoothly, but that the 3D printed thyroid gland is completely functional.

The Top 15 Bioprinters

Here we are again with our Top 10 lists of 3D printers. This time we ventured into the exceedingly complex world of 3D bioprinting. Most commercially available 3D bioprinters are based on some proprietary version of a basic syringe/pressure-based extrusion of both paste-like polymeric substances and hydrogels (also known as bioinks in certain cases), which are basically gel-like substances containing high quantities of water and living cells.

Organ Printing as an Information Technology

Organ printing is defined as a layer by layer additive robotic computer-aided biofabrication of functional 3D organ constructs with using self-assembling tissue spheroids according to digital model.

3D STRUCTURED HUMAN ORGANS BY BIOPRINTING

Bioprinting is a variant of the biomedical application of rapid prototyping technology or layer-by-layer additive biofabrication of 3D tissue and organ constructs for replacement, repair and regeneration of damaged and diseased human organs and tissues.

Bioprinting Solutions & Dreams: an Interview with 3D Bio’s Dr. Vladimir Mironov

This was may day so far: I wrote about an amazing new development in the adoption of 3D printing for surgery in Italy, an incredible new 3D printing technology developed by a graduate student in Buffalo, and a stunning “smart doll” created by a self-described gaijin (non-Japanese person) in Japan. Only a couple of years ago, this would be science fiction. Instead, to top it off, here I am enjoying the sunset with a Campari Spritz, writing about my interview with Vladimir Mironov, the scientist behind most of the work at Russia’s 3D Bioprinting Solutions (3D Bio for short).

3D Bio Delivers on 3D Printed Thyroid Promise

After announcing late last year that they would be able to 3D print a functional thyroid to be implanted in humans by the end of 2015, Skolkovo-based bioprinting start-up 3D Bioprinting Solutions (3D Bio) announced they have, in fact, created the functional bioficial gland; although, so far, the organ has only been deemed suitable for implantation in mice and not humans, quite yet.

Russia's 3D Bioprinting Solutions makes breakthrough in creating first ever 3D printed thyroid gland

It’s no secret that while additive manufacturing has afforded many different industries with cheaper and faster ways of getting objects made fast and accurately, it is the medical industry that has seen some of the most exciting and revolutionary breakthroughs.
