#Flash: First 3D-bioprinting of entire active tumor: Scienti
Scientists extracted "a chunk" of the tumour from the brain of a patient with glioblastoma and use it to build a 3D-model that matches their MRI scans, according to research published in the journal Science Advances. The 3D-bioprinted tumor includes a complex system of blood vessel-like tubes through which blood cells and drugs can flow, simulating a real tumor. This breakthrough will enable much faster prediction of best treatments for patients, accelerate the development of new drugs and discovery of new druggable targets.
