DelveInsight’s “Acromegaly and Gigantism- Epidemiology Forecast to 2023” Report provides an overview of the epidemiology trends of Acromegaly in seven major markets (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and Japan) and Gigantism in six major markets (US, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain). It includes 10 years epidemiology historical and forecasted data of prevalent cases of Acromegaly and Gigantism by age, sex and sub populations. The Report also discusses the prevailing risk factors, disease burden with special emphasis.
Acromegaly is a rare but serious hormonal disorder caused by excessive growth hormone (GH) in the blood in adults. Acromegaly in adults occurs mainly in middle-aged men and women. In This condition, the bones increase in size, including those of the hands, feet and face. Acromegaly is uncommon and physical changes occur gradually thus the condition often isn't recognized immediately and if not treated promptly, it can lead to serious illness and even become life-threatening. According to DelveInsight’s estimates, the prevalent cases of Acromegaly in the 7 MM are expected to increase with a CAGR of 0.72% for the forecast period i.e., 2013-2023.
Gigantism is excessive production of GH in children which is extremely rare and leads to exaggerated bone growth and an abnormal increase in height. It results from high linear growth due to excessive action of insulin like growth factor I (IGF-I) while the epiphyseal growth plates are open during childhood. Acromegaly is the same disorder of IGF-I excess but occurs after the growth plate cartilage fuses in adulthood. According to DelveInsight’s estimates, prevalent cases of Gigantism in the 6 MM are expected to increase with a CAGR of 2% and Acromegaly in the 7 MM are expected to increase with a CAGR of 0.72% for the forecast period i.e., 2013-2023.
The report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house Forecast model analysis by Publisher team of industry experts.
