Scientists in 3D print microfluidics devices used for personalized cancer therapy
Dec 18, 2018

In the experiment, the researchers show that they can keep the tumor fragments survive and monitoring the organization's vitality.The researchers say, because the 3D printing equipment manufacture simple, low cost, so can quickly implement to clinical environment.

"If someone had cancer, you can take a little organization on our equipment, make tumor survive, are subject to a series of tests at the same time, find out the most suitable for patients with method of biological structures."Then the implementation of the treatment in the patients.

(I) : TAP device translucent 3D sketch;(ii) : cross-sectional schematic diagram of the TAP device, shows the structure of air bubble trap;(iii) : display top view of the TAP device, display medium and lymphocyte entrance (A), is used to discharge the residual air bubbles capture (B), tumor capture regional export (D) (C) and devices.(iv) : translucent, 3D sketch shows with entry and exit channels of the features of tumor capture region tumors (note that extend capture bag to channel plane below).

A promising application is to test the immune therapy, this is a kind of use of certain drugs to speed up the patients' immune systems to help it new treatments against cancer.

"Immune therapy designed to target cancer cells on the surface of the molecular markers," Velasquez - Garcia research group, a researcher at the Ashley beckwith-wiedemann said, "this will help ensure that treatment cause for cancer attack directly limit the negative effect on the healthy tissue.Everyone expression of cancer, however, a series of unique surface molecule, therefore, it is hard to predict who will respond to what kind of treatment.Our equipment the using of the actual organization, therefore very suitable for immune therapy."

Next, the researchers designed to test the tumor fragments how to respond to the treatment of real.
