DRG Epidemiology's coverage of hepatocellular carcinoma comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 45 countries worldwide. We report both the incidence and prevalence of hepatocellular 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 and 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 also forecast across the world.

DRG Epidemiology's hepatocellular 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 people diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma per year?
  • In developing countries, what impact will economic growth and development have on the number of people diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma per year?
  • How will improvements in survival change the number of people living with a diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma?
  • How will decreasing recurrence risk change the number of people diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma per year?
  • Of all people with hepatocellular carcinoma, how many in each country across the major mature pharmaceutical markets have been formally diagnosed?
  • Of all people diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma, how many in each country across the major mature pharmaceutical markets are drug-treated?

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 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.

DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following hepatocellular carcinoma patient populations:

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnosed Incident Cases
  • Diagnosed Incident Cases by Stage Distribution
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnosed Prevalent Cases
  • Diagnosed Prevalent Cases by Metastasization Status
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnosed Advanced First Line Drug-Treatable Population
  • Advanced First Line DTP by Treatment
  • Advanced Second Line Drug-Treatable subpopulation(s)
  • Advanced Second Line DTP by Treatment
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnosed Intermediate Drug Treatable Population
  • Diagnosed Intermediate Drug Treatable Population by Treatment
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnosed Early Drug Treatable Population
  • Diagnosed Early Drug Treatable Population by Treatment

… and more (details available on request).

Note: coverage may vary by country and region.
