DUBLIN, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Epiomic Epidemiology Series: Prader-Willi Syndrome Forecast In 21 Major Markets 2018-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disease caused by the loss of function of several genes in a particular region of chromosome 15, affecting many parts of the body. These genes provide instructions for making molecules called small nucleolar RNAs (snRNAs) which have a variety of functions. PWS initially comprises weak muscle tone (hypotonia), feeding difficulties, poor growth and delayed development, usually persisting for 12 months after birth. Around the age of 2 years, this is followed by weight gain and obesity due to hyperphagia, hypogonadism and global developmental delay.
This report provides the current prevalent population for PWS across 21 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Russia, Turkey, Japan, China, South Korea, India, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, 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 from the publisher's analysis team, PWS patients grouped by various features, symptoms and comorbidities have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures.
