Male Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms – Epidemiology – Europe

Clarivate Epidemiology’s coverage of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in 45 countries worldwide. We report the prevalence of male LUTS for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

Most patient populations are forecast over a period of 20 years for the major mature pharmaceutical markets of the United States, EU5, and Japan and 10 years for the other countries covered in this report.

Clarivate Epidemiology’s male LUTS forecast will answer the following questions:

  • Of all men with LUTS, how many in each of the major mature pharmaceutical markets have been formally diagnosed?
  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of male LUTS 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 nine male LUTS patient populations, as follows:

  • Total prevalent cases.
  • Mild prevalent cases.
  • Moderate prevalent cases.
  • Severe prevalent cases.
  • Total prevalent cases with comorbid erectile dysfunction (ED).
  • Mild prevalent cases with comorbid ED.
  • Moderate prevalent cases with comorbid ED.
  • Severe prevalent cases with comorbid ED.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases.
