DRG Epidemiology’s coverage of graft versus host disease(GVHD) 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 incidence of GVHD for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

In addition to forecasting incident patient populations, we estimate the number of drug-treatment opportunities in specific lines of therapy.

DRG Epidemiology’s GVHD forecast will answer the following questions:

  • Of all people diagnosed with GVHD, 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 GVHD 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.

DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following GVHD patient populations:

  • GVHDhematopoietic stem-cell transplants.
  • Diagnosed GVHD: acute subpopulation(s).
  • Diagnosed GVHD: chronic subpopulation(s).
  • Diagnosed acute GVHD: severity subpopulation(s).
  • Diagnosed chronic GVHD: severity subpopulation(s).

Note: Coverage may vary by country and region.
