NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Summary
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), also known as myelogenous leukemia, acute myelocytic leukemia, or acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, is a rare cancer that accounts for a disproportionally high number of cancer-related deaths. The disease is more common in the elderly, and is relatively more common in men than in women.
Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)/therapy-related AML are two subtypes of AML that are especially unique in terms of disease etiology and prognosis, both of which will be discussed in detail in this report. Additionally, AML is associated with molecular gene mutations that are distinct from chromosomal structural abnormalities; of these, the best-studied is the FLT3 mutation (NCI, 2013). AML cases can also be stratified into three prognostic risk groups for treatment planning: favorable, intermediate, and adverse.
GlobalData epidemiologists estimate that the 7MM had 40,661 diagnosed incident cases of AML in 2014, nearly half of which occurred in the US. In the next 10 years, the 7MM will experience an increase in disease burden at a rate of 2.03% per year, which will be driven by population increase; this will result in 48,918 diagnosed incident cases of AML in 2024. For 2014, the number of diagnosed prevalent cases of AML was nearly identical to the number of diagnosed incident cases, at 44,079 cases, thereby underlining the lethality and poor long-term survival of the disease. The development of more effective therapies, particularly for elderly patients, would improve survival and increase disease prevalence.
The Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of AML in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). It includes a 10-year epidemiology forecast of the following segmentations in adults ages 20 years and older across the 7MM -
- Diagnosed incident cases of AML, segmented by sex and 10-year age groups
- Five-year diagnosed prevalent cases of AML, segmented by ages 20-59 years and ages 60 years and older
- Diagnosed incident and five-year diagnosed prevalent cases of APL and MDS/therapy-related AML, segmented by ages 20-59 years and ages 60 years and older
- Diagnosed incident cases of AML that have mutations in the FLT3 gene
- Diagnosed incident cases of AML classified into favorable, intermediate, and adverse risk groups
- The AML epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
