EpiCast Report: Huntington’s Disease - Epidemiology Forecast to 2024

Summary

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a rare, inherited, genetic disorder that causes progressive degeneration of the nerve cells of the brain especially the caudate, the putamen, and the cerebral cortex. As the brain cells die, a person with HD is unable to control movements, recall events, make decisions, and control emotions, and the disorder leads to incapacitation, cognitive and psychiatric disorders, and eventually death. The signs and symptoms of HD mostly appear between the ages 30-40 years, although the onset of disease may occur earlier or later in life. Therefore the disease is mostly of adult onset. The average lifespan of a person after being diagnosed with adult-onset HD is about 15-20 years. When the onset of the disease begins earlier than the age 20 years, the condition is called juvenile HD. Juvenile HD presents somewhat different symptoms and has a faster disease progression.

GlobalData epidemiologists forecast an increase in the diagnosed prevalence of HD over the ten-year forecast period. The number of diagnosed prevalent cases of HD in the 7MM will increase from 57,314 cases in 2014 to 60,743 cases in 2024, with an AGR of 0.60% during the forecast period. For juvenile HD, GlobalData epidemiologists forecast an increase from 1,000 diagnosed prevalent cases in 2014 to 1,013 diagnosed prevalent cases in 2024, in the 7MM, with an AGR of 0.13%.

GlobalData epidemiologists used the available data on HD to the best extent possible to provide the most insightful epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of HD, diagnosed prevalent cases of juvenile HD, diagnosed prevalent cases of HD by age at onset, and diagnosed prevalent cases of adults with juvenile-onset HD that progressed to adulthood in the 7MM. All sources for the 7MM assessed HD by diagnostic testing, including genetic tests. Additionally, the forecast methodology was kept consistent across the 7MM to allow for a meaningful comparison of the projected diagnosed prevalent cases of HD across the markets.
