Clarivate Epidemiology’s coverage of renal cell carcinoma comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in 45 countries worldwide. We report both the incidence and prevalence of renal cell carcinoma 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, Europe, and Japan and 10 years for the other countries covered in this report. In addition to forecasting incident and prevalent patient populations, we estimate the number of drug-treatment opportunities in specific lines of therapy.
Clarivate Epidemiology’s renal cell carcinoma forecast will answer the following questions:
How will changes in the levels of exposure to known risk or protective factors affect the number of renal cell carcinoma events per year?
Of all people diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma, how many in each country are drug-treated?
How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of renal cell carcinoma 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 addition, we provide a graphical depiction of the patient flow between or within different disease states for the countries considered in this report. These patient flow diagrams are provided at the regional level, but may be requested for any specific country or forecast year.
In total, Clarivate Epidemiology forecasts 27 renal cell carcinoma patient populations, as follows:
Diagnosed incident cases.
Diagnosed incident cases by stage.
Diagnosed incident cases of metastatic recurrent disease.
Literature review (studies included in/excluded from the analyses of renal cell carcinoma)
Diagnosed incident cases
Stage distribution of renal cell carcinoma
Recurrent incident cases of renal cell carcinoma
Diagnosed prevalent cases
Risk / protective factors applied to disease forecast models
