A Proof of Concept for 3D Printing of Solid Lipid-Based Formulations of Poorly Water-Soluble Drugs to Control Formulation Dispersion Kinetics

Vithani K, Goyanes A, Jannin V, Basit AW, Gaisford S, Boyd BJ

Pharm Res. 2019 May 16;36(7):102.
doi: 10.1007/s11095-019-2639-y.

In this study, the authors show that solid SMEDDS can be produced with a 3D printing  process and solid and semi-solid lipid excipients. The proof of concept is established with cinnarizine and fenofibrate as model drugs.
