Hopefully. The article I read stated that they would not be ready for the attempt for two years. A lot can happen in two years.

Someone else may have one finished by the time this group is just starting.

Exclamation FDA Approves First 3-D Printed Drug

I saw this and even I never thought them printing meds this way, not sure why, but this is a great development.


3-D printing has been around in various forms since the 1980s, originally as a means of quickly producing affordable prototypes for the manufacturing industry. Recently, researchers have found some amazing healthcare and biological applications for 3-D printing technology. From custom prosthetics to living tissue, 3-D printing is a versatile means of providing cost effective and individualized care to patients.

This game-changing technology just took a giant leap forward in the pharmaceutical industry. On August 3, 2015, Aprecia Phramaceuticals, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved itís SPRITAM drug for the treatment of epilepsy. The company claims that SPRITAM is the first drug ever approved by the FDA that is manufactured using 3-D printing technologies.

Has anyone thought about kg this technology continues to explode, we could see the end of economics and disease for the most part? What Good will money be when you can replicate whatever you want or need with the push of a button? What difference will a stroke make of we can upload all your collective 'information' and upload it into a new brain

What you are describing is the second machine age and finally the technological singularity.

I won't be here, but I would like to be able to know how many of our species will survive that upheaval. The result will be more devastating than all the wars in history put together.

Maybe. Maybe not. 15 years from now I will be 82. My two oldest brothers died from Alzheimer's at age 82. If my sister has it five years from now I figure I'm screwed.

All you have to do is make it 5 years to the biotech revolution. Also, and little off topic, it looks like we are making great strides in Alzheimer's.

The key sentence in the article.

And this year, or as soon as the FDA will allow your grandmother to get help anyway, all of that may just go away.

And if it happens it will be interesting to see what the cost will be.
