DRG Epidemiology's coverage of rheumatoid arthritic pain comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across the major mature pharmaceutical markets (the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan). We report the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritic pain for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.
DRG Epidemiology's rheumatoid arthritic pain forecast will answer the following questions:
- Of all people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritic pain, 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 rheumatoid arthritic pain 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 also provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following rheumatoid arthritic pain subpopulations:
- Diagnosed prevalent cases by drug-treatment status
Note: coverage may vary by country.
- Rheumatoid Arthritic Pain - Epidemiology - Europe Data
