The many issues facing the African continent concerning food, energy, healthcare, and many other services taken for granted in various areas of the globe continue to dominate headlines. Those issues bring the heads of nations to the table to speak seriously on what we all can do to address crises that arise in any part of the world. If each of us were to take steps in our own lives to examine the way we go about our daily routines, there could be some miraculous improvements. Take a look at a company in Africa that is dedicated to that concept – and the well-deserved recognition they’ve received for their work! Notably, they were a recipient of a Genesis Generation Prize in 2015. Click the logo below to learn about this exciting company in Nairobi, Kenya…

The term “designer drug” may soon refer less to the illicit kind and more to custom creations by the pharmaceutical industry. Aprecia Pharmaceuticals Company has just had its proprietary ZipDose® Technology platform approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This marks the very first instance that the FDA has given the green light for a 3D-printed drug product.
ZipDose® Technology utilizes their proprietary three-dimensional printing (3DP) platform. This process stitches together multiple layers of powdered medication using an aqueous fluid to produce a porous, water-soluble matrix that rapidly disintegrates with a sip of liquid.
Spritam levetiracetam is an oral prescription for the treatment of seizures and those affected by epilepsy. Aprecia’s ZipDose® Technology enables the delivery of this drug, up to 1,000 mg per dose, with just a sip of water. This rapid disintegration method is achieved by 3D printing Spritam with a porous formulation. As a result, each dose is easy to take and does not require any measuring.
