DRG’s extended worldwide coverage is the first and only evidence-based data set of epidemiological forecasts for key Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia populations covering 171 countries and more than 99% of the global population, delivered in an interactive dashboard-style download. Use the extended worldwide coverage data set to:

  • View 10-year forecasts of the first-line drug-treatable population and diagnosed incident cases for all 171 countries, stratified by region and World Bank income status.
  • Aggregate country-level estimates into region-level estimates, according to user preference or as required by regulators for orphan drug designations.
  • Visualize global correlations between disease risk or patient population size and key indicators of market opportunity such as GDP per capita and healthcare spend per capita.
  • Generate and export global heat maps of disease risk or patient population size.

The extended worldwide coverage dashboard is available as an Excel file in the “Downloads” section. It is available only to clients with subscriptions to all 45 countries covered by DRG Epidemiology. For subscription and entitlement queries, please contact questions@teamdrg.com.

He has also been responsible for developing national guidelines on behalf of NICE and the American College of Chest Physicians for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, stroke and hypertension. He is particularly interested in modeling patient flows in cancer and methods for forecasting disease burden in non-communicable epidemiology.

Dr. Hughes received his Ph.D. in risk modeling in intensive care in 2003 from City University, London and is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program in statistical causation and foundations of probability theory at the University of Nottingham.
