BACKGROUND Personalized medicines are becoming more popular as they enable the use of patient's genomics and hence help in better drug design with fewer side effects. In fact, several doses can be combined into one dosage form which suits the patient's demography. 3 Dimensional (3D) printing technology for personalized medicine is a modern day treatment method based on genomics of patient. METHODS 3D printing technology uses digitally controlled devices for formulating API and excipients in a…
