DelveInsight’s ‘Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM)- Epidemiology Forecast to 2030’ report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted MPM epidemiology in the 7MM, i.e., the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) Understanding
Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive form of malignant tumor that is caused by inhaled asbestos fibers and forms in the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. Pleural mesothelioma is a cancer of the pleura, which is the mesothelium surrounding the lungs and it is the most common type of mesothelioma, accounting for 80 – 90% of all diagnosed cases. Because males are exposed to asbestos more often, they are more likely to be diagnosed with mesothelioma. The main risk factor for pleural mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a group of minerals that occur naturally as bundles of tiny fibers. These fibers are found in soil and rocks in many parts of the world. When asbestos fibers in the air are inhaled, they can get into the lungs. Fibers that stay in the lungs can travel to the ends of the small airways and enter the pleural lining of the lung and chest wall. The initial clinical presentation of mesothelioma may be dyspnea, generally associated with developing pleural effusion. Pleural pain, not related to breathing movements, is also a common manifestation. Weight loss and other symptoms are rare in the early stages, but as the condition advances, marked hemithorax retraction is often observed, and pain becomes particularly intense and persistent. Standard diagnostic workup in patients with MPM includes Chest X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest and upper abdomen, PET, MRI to define the extension of the disease. Invasive procedures are required to obtain specimens for a definitive histological and bio-molecular diagnosis. Additional investigations include blood markers and pulmonary function tests.
Epidemiology Perspective by DelveInsight
The MPM epidemiology division provides insights about historical and current patient pool and forecasted trends for each seven major countries. The MPM epidemiology data are studied through MPM possible division to give a better understanding of the Disease scenario in the 7MM.
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted MPM epidemiology [segmented as Total Incidence of Mesothelioma, Total Incident Cases of MPM, Total Incident Cases of MPM Segmented by Age and Gender, Total Type-specific Cases of MPM, Total Incident Cases of MPM by Stages, and Treated Patient Pool of MPM] scenario of MPM in the 7MM covering the United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan from 2017 to 2030.
MPM Detailed Epidemiology Segmentation
• The total Incident cases of MPM in the 7MM were observed to be 11,431 cases in 2017 which are estimated to decline during the study period (2017–2030
• Mesothelioma incidence rates in most of the 7MM countries (except Spain and Japan) are in the declining trend due to reduced population-wide exposure to asbestos.
• In EU-5 countries, the highest number of incident cases of MPM was found in the United Kingdom with 2,495 cases in 2017, followed by Germany and Italy.
• Epithelial mesothelioma cells are the most common type of MPM and respond the best to treatment
• In age-specific cases of MPM, the most number of cases were observed in elder people (more than 80% cases in people age 60 years and above) because mesothelioma carries an unusually long latency period of 20 to 50 years.
