Nurse Alice on FOX: Printed meds could reinvent the prescription drug industry

Although it may be a several years down the road, instead of taking multiple pills – what do you think about combining them all and taking printed medications?
The technique, which was developed at the University of Michigan, can print multiple medications into a single dose on a dissolvable strip, microneedle patch or other dosing device.

The researchers adapted a technology from electronics manufacturing called organic vapor-jet printing.

It has implications for speeding up clinical trials and getting more effective medications to patients sooner as these medications are dissolved and absorbed differently that traditional pills.
