The "Parkinson's Disease Forecast in 19 Major Markets 2018-2028" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that seriously affects everyday activities. PD is an age-related, progressive disease characterised by the damage to and death of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, as well as other regions of the brain. This results in the onset and development of various motor and non-motor manifestations that lead to disability and significantly deteriorate patient quality of life. Studies conducted over the last two decades have revealed the complex and multifactorial nature of the disease.

This report provides the current prevalent population for Parkinson's disease across 19 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Russia, Poland, Netherlands, 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, patient populations with the appropriate stages of Parkinson's disease, as well as several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Parkinson's disease have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures.
