Polycythemia Vera (PV), also known as erythraemia, erythrocytosis, erythrocytosis megalosplenica, Osler disease, primary polycythemia, polycythemia rubra vera or Vaquez disease, is the over production of red blood cells as a result of acquired mutations in an early blood-forming cell. Since these early blood-forming cells have the capability to form not only red cells, but also white cells and platelets, any combination of these cell lines may be affected. This condition develops slowly and may remain undetected for many years.

This report provides the current prevalent population for Polycythemia Vera across 27 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, India, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey  ) 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 Polycythemia Vera 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 Polycythemia Vera include:

  • Blood clots
  • Splenomegaly
  • Skin problems
  • Peptic Ulcers
  • Gout
  • Myelofibrosis
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Acute myeloid leukaemia

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 from patient registries, clinical trials and epidemiology studies. All of the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.
