Target Product Profile (TPP)

A target product profile (TPP) outlines the desired ‘profile’ or characteristics of a target product that is aimed at a particular disease or diseases. TPPs state intended use, target populations and other desired attributes of products, including safety and efficacy-related characteristics. Such profiles can guide product research and development (R&D). In industry, in-house target product profiles (TPPs) are used as planning tools that guide development towards desired characteristics. In the regulatory context, TPPs are considered as tools to frame development in relation to submission of product dossiers.
In the context of public health, TPPs set R&D targets for funders and developers.
