DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of narcolepsy 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 the diagnosed prevalence of narcolepsy for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

Most patient populations in the major mature pharmaceutical markets are forecast over a period of 20 years.
