Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis – Epidemiology – Emerging Markets

Clarivate Epidemiology’s coverage of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in the emerging pharmaceutical markets (China, India, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, and Turkey). We report both the incidence and prevalence of IPF for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

Clarivate Epidemiology’s IPF forecast will answer the following questions:

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

All forecast data are available on the Clarivate 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 also provided for full transparency into research and methods.

In total, Clarivate Epidemiology forecasts 11 IPF patient populations, as follows:

  • Diagnosed incident cases of IPF.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of IPF.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of stage 1 IPF.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of stage 2 IPF.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of stage 3 IPF.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of IPF with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of IPF with emphysema.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of IPF with pulmonary hypertension.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of IPF with obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Diagnosed drug-treated prevalent cases of IPF.
  • Diagnosed non-drug-treated prevalent cases of IPF.

Note: Coverage may vary by country.
