The Long-Acting therapeutics Patents and Licences database LAPaL is a free online collaborative repository for long-acting therapeutics with potential impact for global health. It provides information on a selection of long-acting technologies and compounds, including an overview of their intellectual property landscape, main clinical trials and regulatory approvals. LAPaL aims to facilitate collaborations in the long-acting space and advocate for access to long-acting (LA) therapeutics.

LAPaL is coordinated by the Medicines Patent Pool, in close collaboration with University of Liverpool’s Center of Excellence for Long-acting Therapeutics (CELT). The project is supported by Unitaid and by the NIH throught the LEAP program. The platform was built by MobileThinking in Geneva.
