Posted on: 03 Oct 17

The "Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease Forecast in 19 Major Markets 2017-2027" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a common disorder of the upper gastrointestinal tract. According to the most recent definition, it is a condition occurring when reflux of gastric contents causes troublesome symptoms and/or complications. Based on endoscopy findings, the disease is broadly classified into two subtypes: demonstrating oesophageal mucosal damage (Erosive Reflux Disease, ERD) or no mucosal damage (Non-Erosive Reflux Disease, NERD). Injury to the oesophagus that may be associated with GORD is due to re?ux of gastric acid and pepsin, but also bile in the case of duodenogastric re?ux.

This report provides the current prevalent population for GORD across 19 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Russia, Norway, Sweden, 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 analysis team, the two subtypes of the disease (ERD and NERD), as well as several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of GORD 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.
