DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of pulmonary hypertension (PH) comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations in the Americas. 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 ten years for the pharmaceutical markets we cover 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?
  • How will GDP trends, demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of PH over the forecast period?
