A target product profile (TPP) outlines the desired characteristics of a new drug or other medical intervention (e.g diagnostic tool). TPPs describe intended use, target populations and other desired attributes of products, including safety and efficacy-related characteristics. In industry 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.
