ITALY DISEASE INCIDENCE AND PREVALENCE

338 Pages | 97 Exhibits | 2012 Analysis

OVERVIEW:
As the aging population in Europe increases and the average life span lengthens, the incidence and prevalence of major diseases/disorders are expected to significantly impact the European healthcare industry. This dynamic new report from Medtech Insight examines the incidence and prevalence of selected diseases/disorders in Italy and compares them with those of the Benelux countries (Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands), the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden), and the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom).

This report is the third in a series of five reports (Disease Incidence and Prevalence for France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) that examine the etiology and epidemiology of the most prevalent and costly diseases/disorders in Europe. Topics covered by each of these reports include Alzheimer's disease, anemia, arthritis, asthma, benign prostatic hyperplasia, bronchitis, burns/traumatic wounds, cancer, depression, diabetes, emphysema, erectile dysfunction, glaucoma, heart failure, human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome, hypertension, infertility, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, pneumonia, stroke, and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, among others.

In addition to proprietary data utilized from Medtech Insight's internal resources, many agencies and organizations have provided information including Alzheimer's Disease International, Cystic Fibrosis Europe, European Association of Urology, European Cancer Observatory, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, European Kidney Health Alliance, European Society of Cardiology, International Diabetes Federation, International Osteoporosis Foundation, Italian Association of Sleep Medicine (Associazione Italiana di Medicina del Sonno), Italian Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation (Fondazione per la Ricerca Sulla Fibrosi Cistica), Italian Hemophilia Society (Federazione delle Associazioni Emofilici Onlus), Italian Parkinson Association (Associazione Italiana Parkinsoniani), Multiple Sclerosis International Federation, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, and the World Health Organization, among others.
