Research and Markets: EpiCast Report: Genital Herpes - Epidemiology Forecast to 2023

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gnwmcn/epicast_report) has announced the addition of the "EpiCast Report: Genital Herpes - Epidemiology Forecast to 2023" report to their offering.

The publisher epidemiologists forecast an increase in the diagnosed incident cases of genital herpes in the 7MM from 405,319 in 2013 to 448,525 diagnosed incident cases in 2023, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.07% during the forecast period. The distribution of diagnosed incident cases of genital herpes in the 7MM was lower in men (153,129 cases, 37.78% in 2013) than it was in women (252,190 cases, 62.22% in 2013). The diagnosed prevalent cases of HSV-1 only genital herpes, HSV-2 only genital herpes, and HSV-1 and HSV-2 co-infection genital herpes increased from 2013 to 2023 in the 7MM, with respective AGRs of 0.53%, 0.71%, and 0.74%. In all the markets, the diagnosed prevalent cases of genital herpes increased with age, which is reflective of the lifetime infection characteristic of the disease.

Our epidemiological forecasts for the diagnosed incident cases and diagnosed prevalent cases of genital herpes are supported by age- and sex-specific data obtained from country-specific studies published in peer-reviewed journals, in which the study populations were representative of the general population in the respective markets. The forecast provides the sex-specific diagnosed incident cases of genital herpes in each of the 7MM and the diagnosed prevalent cases of genital herpes segmented by strain type (HSV-1, HSV-2, and the co-infection of HSV-1 and HSV-2), which facilitate an in-depth understanding of the epidemiological trends and informs strategies to improve the management of the disease.

Scope

- The Genital Herpes EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and global trends for genital herpes in the seven major markets (7MM) (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). It includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed incident cases of genital herpes, segmented by strain (HSV-1 and HSV-2) for ages =18 years, and the diagnosed prevalent cases of HSV-1 only genital herpes, HSV-2 only genital herpes, and genital herpes caused by the co-infection of both HSV-1 and HSV-2, segmented by sex for ages =18 years.

- The Genital Herpes epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.

- The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
