Just a short not re PrEP implant - Poster 879

Looks like a implanon - looks easy to insert and to remove - Initially seems to deliver effective drug concentrations for 3 months - but surely this will improve.

" developed a biodegradable TFPD for subcutaneous delivery of TAF for HIV PrEP. The size, shape, and release rate of the device are tunable over a >8-fold range"

Fantastic - surely multiple compounds could be delivered this way

Surely a device that lasts for 12 months or would be perfect for PrEP.
