Huntington’s Disease – Epidemiology – Americas

DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of Huntington’s disease (HD) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in the Americas (Argentina, Canada, Chile, Colombia, and Peru). We report the prevalence of the disease for each country under study, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

DRG Epidemiology’s HD forecast will answer the following questions:

  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of HD over the forecast period?

All forecast data are available on the DRG Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is provided for full transparency into research and methods.

In addition to the total number of cases for each forecast year, DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following HD subpopulations:

  • Diagnosed prevalence of premanifest HD.
  • Diagnosed prevalence of manifest HD.
  • Diagnosed incident cases of manifest HD.
  • Diagnosed population at risk.
  • Diagnosed prevalence of manifest HD by disease stage.

Note: Coverage may vary by country.
