the spread of 3D bioprinting in transplantation has helped in aggravating moral related problems witnessed in the society today (3). On the other hand, the easier access of tissue regeneration nd organ transplantation services to replace the non-functional ones may contribute to people adopting dangerous that do not protect their health, as they are assured of acquiring another organ without any problem(Vermeulen 4).

Last Name 9 The 3D bioprinting has resulted to dramatic reduction of costs involved in organ transplantation and other follow ups. Through the use of various technologies in bioprinting such as tissue regeneration stems cells can now be extracted in an individual tissues which are also used in creating another organ. Thus, people no longer have to wait for a long time in the Transplant list as they wait to undergo surgery and follow up procedures. The benefits of this of overall improvement of the quality of life of an average person and minimizing the risks of tissue rejection .Also the development of this technology has helped in the reduction of cost related to the treatment of diseases illnesses, making it affordable to all persons (Choonara et al 24). 3D bioprinting technology has increased efficiency in terms of manufacturing costs. Manufacturing companies such as pharmaceuticals have been able to decrease unnecessary resources in terms of production (Choonara et al 24).l. For instance, a pharmaceutical drugs weighing 10mg through use bioprinting technology has been custom fabricated to only weigh 1mg. Small-sized companies have also benefited especially those in the orthopedic industry where standards implants and prosthetics can be now be reproduced at a relatively cheaper price. 3D bioprinting has given rise to safety and security issues in other fields. Criminals are now using 3D technology to printing illegl items and faking identities especially master keys. Such incidences are as result of lack of clear regulation in the 3D printing field. However, in the medical field, the technology has helped in countering counterfeits medical appliances and medications. Future Trends 3D bioprinting technology in future is expected to play a critical role towards personalized medicine, organs and drugs. In the pharmeucitical industry it is likely to change the traditional distribution channel that involves emailing databases to their clients on how to use the

Last Name 10 prescriptions to customized and personalized drugs(Murphy, Sean, and Anthony 773).. The impact is reduction of costs especially on patients and the manufacturing companies. The most expected revolution is the application of 3D bioprinting in complex organs. Current research estimates that in 20 years, there will be fully functioning printable organs that will help in reducing the costs of organ transplantation. The liver and kidney tissues will also be fabricated easily and successfully just like other organs, opening the doors for the development of viable implants as well as organ models. Patient’s tissue print outs will also help the most

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
