Black Swan Analysis Epiomic™ Epidemiology Series Forecast Report on Osteoarthritis in 9 Major Markets
Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as degenerative joint disease / degenerative arthritis, is an inflammation of the articular cartilage and sub-chondral bone. OA is actually a collection of diseases rather than one disease per se: can be primary (chronic degenerative disorder related to but not caused by age, with a strong genetic linkage - reports of ~ 60%) or secondary (caused by injury, infection / inflammation and as a consequence of other chronic diseases).

Regardless of origin, the resulting pathology is the same, with bone growth into the joint capsule. OA can affect any joint, however is predominantly found in weight-bearing joints such as knees and hips. Other common sites are hands, feet and spine.

This report provides the current prevalent population for Osteoarthritis across 9 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil, Japan and India) 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 analysis team at Black Swan, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Osteoarthritis have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.

There are a number of conditions that co-occur with OA including:
- Congenital joint abnormalities (Marfan syndrome)
