DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of pulmonary hypertension (PH) 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 prevalence of PH 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 covered in this report. In addition to forecasting prevalent patient populations, we forecast the number of drug-treatment opportunities in specific lines of therapy.
DRG Epidemiology’s PH forecast will answer the following questions:
- How many people will be diagnosed with PH?
- Of all people diagnosed with PH, 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 PH over the forecast period?

She 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.
She produces analyses for pharmaceutical drug developers on the descriptive epidemiology of major drug indications in mature and developing markets.
She 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 Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, India. She also has a Fellowship in Heath care Technology Assessment from World health Organization (WHO), India office.
