DRG Epidemiology's coverage of chronic myeloid leukemia comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 45 countries worldwide. We report both the incidence and prevalence of chronic myeloid leukemia 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, the number of drug-treatment opportunities at specific lines of therapy are also forecast across the developed world.

DRG Epidemiology's chronic myeloid leukemia forecast will answer the following questions:

In developing countries, what impact will economic growth and development have on the number of people diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia per year?

How will improvements in survival change the number of people diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia per year?

Of all people diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, how many in each country across the world are drug-treated?

How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of chronic myeloid leukemia 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 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 chronic myeloid leukemia patient populations:

CML Diagnosed Incident Cases

CML Diagnosed Incident Cases by Phase Distribution

CML Diagnosed Prevalent Cases

CML first-line drug-treatable population subpopulation(s)

CML first-line treatment subpopulation(s)

CML second-line drug-treatable population subpopulation(s)

CML second-line treatment subpopulation(s)

CML third-line drug-treatable population subpopulation(s)

CML third-line treatment subpopulation(s)

Author(s): Narendra Parihar; Atul Sharma, MPH

Narendra is an associate epidemiologist within the epidemiology team at Decision Resources Group. Narendra specializes in developing epidemiological forecasts for multiple indications within the DRG syndicated portfolio. His qualifications include an MPH with specialization in Health Policy, Economics and Finance from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, and a Bachelor’s degree in Dentistry from the Rajasthan University of Health Sciences.

Atul Sharma started working in Decision Resources Group as an intern in early 2016 and currently works as an associate epidemiologist. He performs fully documented systematic reviews of both published and grey literature on the epidemiology of assigned diseases and their risk factors to estimate incidence/prevalence over a 10-30 year period. He produces analyses for pharmaceutical drug developers on the descriptive epidemiology of major drug indications in mature and developing markets. He holds a Master’s in Public Health degree from School of Public Health, Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research and a Bachelor’s in dental surgery from MN DAV Dental College & Hospital.
