Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells and is characterized by the production of abnormal immunoglobulins (Ig) or antibodies, as well as an accumulation of malignant plasma cells in the bone marrow. In some cases it can be asymptomatic, known as smouldering Multiple Myeloma. Although there have been several advancements in understanding how the disease develops, it is unclear as to what exactly causes it.
This report provides the current incident population for Multiple Myeloma across 18 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Argentina, Russia and Australia) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Multiple Myeloma have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.
Main symptoms and co-morbidities for Multiple Myeloma include:
- Increased % of bone marrow plasma cells (BMPC %)
- Renal failure
- Elevated C-reactive protein
