Epiomic Epidemiology Report: Wilson’s Disease Forecast In 28 Major Markets 2018-2028 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 19, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 19, 2018--The “Epiomic Epidemiology Series: Wilson’s Disease Forecast In 28 Major Markets 2018-2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Wilson’s disease, also known as progressive lenticular degeneration, is a genetic disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. It is caused by mutations in a gene coding for a copper-transporting protein with a key role in copper metabolism. Reduced activity of the protein leads to copper accumulation in the body which results in various hepatic, osseous, neurological and psychiatric manifestations. Although the genotype-phenotype correlation is still to be elucidated, therapies that are currently available permit patients to live fairly normal lives. However, hepatic and neurological damage sustained prior to the commencement of therapy can be irreversible.

This report provides the current prevalent population for Wilson’s disease across 28 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Bulgaria, Russia, Turkey, Japan, China, South Korea, India, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. In addition to the current prevalence, the report provides an overview of the risk factors, diagnosis and prognosis of the disease, along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
