Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia – Epidemiology – Mature Markets

DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia and Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in the major mature pharmaceutical markets (the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Japan). We report both the diagnosed incidence and diagnosed prevalence of WM and LPL 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.

DRG Epidemiology’s WM and LPL forecast will answer the following questions:

  • How will changes in the levels of exposure to known risk or protective factors affect the number of people diagnosed with WM and LPL per year?
  • Of all people diagnosed with WM and LPL, how many in each of the major mature pharmaceutical markets are drug-treated?
  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of WM and LPL 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 to the total number of cases for each forecast year, DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following WM and LPL subpopulations:

  • Diagnosed incident cases of Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia.
  • Diagnosed incident cases of Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma.
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
  • Diagnosed prevalent cases of Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma.
  • Diagnosed incident cases by treatment status.

Note: Coverage may vary by country.
