DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zf3l5c/epiomic) has announced the addition of the "Epiomic Epidemiology Series: Fabry Disease Forecast in 8 Major Markets 2015-2025" report to their offering.
Fabry disease is a lysosomal storage disorder, caused by a genetic defect in the alpha-galactosidase-A gene (aGLA-gene), localized on the long arm of the X-chromosome (Xq22). This gene is essential in the breakdown of fatty substances, otherwise substances like globotriaosylceramide, will accumulate in the arteries, narrowing them and reducing blood flow around the body. It is a multi-system disorder characterised by dermatologic angiokeratoma corporis diffusum and purpura haemorrhagica nodularis, but also affects ocular, auditory, cardiac, digestive and renal systems.
This report provides the current prevalent population for Fabry Disease across 8 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil and Japan) 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 publisher's own analysis team, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Fabry disease have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence figures.
