EpiCast Report: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) - Epidemiology Forecast to 2024

Summary

The Staphylococcus aureus bacterium, which was discovered in the 1880s, is a common cause of painful skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs). The discovery of penicillin in 1928 allowed for the routine and successful treatment of S. aureus infections. However, in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s, S. aureus developed resistance to penicillin. Another form of penicillin, called methicillin, was introduced to counter the increasing problem of penicillin-resistant S. aureus. However, beginning in the 1960s, some strains of S. aureus began demonstrating resistance to methicillin, resulting in what is now known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is resistant to all beta-lactam antibiotics, including penicillin, methicillin, and amoxicillin. Thus, MRSA has evolved from a controllable nuisance into a serious public health concern.

For this analysis, GlobalData epidemiologists defined MRSA as bacterial infections caused by methicillin-resistant S. aureus. These bacteria are resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics, such as methicillin, amoxicillin, penicillin, and oxacillin. This analysis only includes hospitalized MRSA cases arising from the following infections: pneumonia, SSTIs, and BSIs. The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10), code for MRSA infections (unspecified site) is A49.02.

In 2014, there were a total of 797,883 hospitalized incident cases of MRSA in the 7MM. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the hospitalized incident cases of MRSA in the 7MM will increase to 884,727 cases by 2024 at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.09%. The number of hospitalized incident cases of MRSA in the US, France, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan will increase, with AGRs ranging from 0.14% (Italy) to 3.54% (Japan), but will decrease in Germany, with a negative AGR of 0.19%.

Scope

- The Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of MRSA in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global and historical trends for MRSA in the 7MM and includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the hospitalized incident cases of MRSA, segmented by sex, age, infection site (pneumonias, SSTIs, and bloodstream infections [BSIs]), and case definition (HA-MRSA and CA-MRSA), in these markets.
- The MRSA epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
