The DSM-5 defines opioid use disorder as a problematic pattern of opioid use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress, typically manifested by one of the following within a 12-month period, taking larger amounts of opioids or taking opioids over a longer period than was intended. As a result of the increased death toll largely in western parts of the world because of opioid misuse of prescription drugs such as fentanyl, heroin continues to be crisis which affects public health as well as social and economic welfare.

This report provides the current incidence for Bell’s palsy across 24 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Ireland,  Brazil, Turkey, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia, India, Switzerland, Austria) 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 opioid use disorder 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.

Main symptoms and co-morbidities for the disease include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Inability to control opioid use
  • Uncontrollable cravings
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent flu-like symptoms
  • Change in volume of tears/saliva that the individual may produce

This report is built using data and information sourced from the proprietary Epiomic patient segmentation database. To generate accurate patient population estimates, the Epiomic database utilises a combination of several world class sources that deliver the most up to date information form patient registries, clinical trials and epidemiology studies. All the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.
