Renal Cell Carcinoma – Epidemiology – Europe

DRG Epidemiology's coverage of renal cell carcinoma comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 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 they are forecast for 10 years for the other countries covered in this report. In addition to forecasting incident and prevalent patient populations, the number of drug-treatment opportunities at specific lines of therapy are forecast across the world.

DRG Epidemiology's renal cell carcinoma forecast will answer the following questions:

  • How will changes in the level of exposure to known risk or protective factors affect the number of people diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma per year?
  • Of all people diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma, how many in each country across the major mature pharmaceutical markets 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 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 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 major mature pharmaceutical markets. These patient flow diagrams are provided at the regional level but may be requested for any specific country or forecast year.

In total, DRG Epidemiology forecasts 27 renal cell carcinoma patient populations, as follows:

  • Diagnosed incident cases.
  • Diagnosed stage I-IV incident cases.
  • Diagnosed metastatic recurrent incident cases.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases.
  • Diagnosed early-stage (stages I-III) drug-treated population.
  • Diagnosed first-line metastatic drug-treatable population.
  • Diagnosed first-line metastatic drug-treated population.
  • Diagnosed second-line metastatic drug-treatable population
  • Diagnosed second-line metastatic drug-treated population.
  • Diagnosed third-line metastatic drug-treatable population.
  • Diagnosed third-line metastatic drug-treated population.
  • Diagnosed fourth-line metastatic drug-treatable population.
  • Diagnosed fourth-line metastatic drug-treated population.
  • … and many more (details available on request).
