EpiCast Report: Myasthenia Gravis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2024

Summary

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease that affects the nerves and muscles and is characterized by muscle weakness and fatigue, especially weakness of the muscles controlling eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, chewing and talking. In some cases the muscles controlling breathing are also affected, which can lead to respiratory failure that requires intubation and mechanical ventilation, known as a myasthenic crisis. The muscle weakness seen in myasthenia gravis is most often caused by circulating antibodies that mistakenly attack healthy tissue and inhibit normal neuromuscular transmission by blocking or damaging muscle receptor cells.

GlobalData epidemiologists forecast an increase in the diagnosed prevalent cases of myasthenia gravis in the 7MM, from 106,845 cases in 2014 to 119,939 cases in 2024, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.23% in the forecast period. The highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of myasthenia gravis fell into the =75 year age group in the 7MM. The majority of diagnosed prevalent cases of myasthenia gravis in the 7MM in 2014 were women. The US and the 5EU markets follow a similar pattern, in which Class III has the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases. Japan, however, has more cases in Class II than any other Class.

To build the epidemiological forecast of myasthenia gravis in the 7MM, GlobalData epidemiologists reviewed the literature and obtained country-specific, population-based studies that reported myasthenia gravis prevalence as determined via medical record reviews. GlobalData epidemiologists obtained country-specific diagnosed prevalence data for the US, Italy, the UK, and Japan, thereby providing valuable analysis of epidemiological trends amongst the 7MM. This forecast also includes age- and sex-specific segmentations, thereby providing detailed information about the characteristic of the disease in each market.
