MPT target product profiles

Monday, 22 January 2018 Tags // clinical, development, process, product, regulatory, target-setting, TPP

A critical function of the IMPT Secretariat is to serve as a knowledge manager for the MPT field. In this way, we collect and disseminate MPT-relevant resources, as well as synthesize data and stakeholder expertise into useful tools and frameworks in order to inform future work within the MPT field. While the IMPT Secretariat continues to develop new resources to meet the needs of an evolving field, we want to highlight a tool – originally developed in 2015 – that is still relevant to stakeholders in the MPT field today: generalized Target Product Profiles (TPPs) for intravaginal ring (IVR) MPTs and long-acting injectable MPTs.

Status of the field: MPTs in the product pipeline

Wednesday, 29 November 2017 Tags // contraception, development, prevention, product, STIs, women

Since 2009, when MPTs officially became a “thing,” we have had a lot of conversations about MPTs and answered even more questions. We have spoken with friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, seatmates on plane flights – you name it. Until recently, not many people had heard of MPTs, and we spent a large part of these conversations doing quite a bit of explaining.

Most people we talk to seem universally on board with the concept of MPTs, thinking that it “just makes sense” as a prevention approach. However, because there aren’t many ready-to-use MPTs on the market (condoms being the sole exception) they are also hesitant to get “too excited” about future products still in development. For many, MPTs sound great – but intangible, disconnected from reality.
