DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Molluscum Contagiosum - Epidemiology Forecast - 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Molluscum Contagiosum - Epidemiology Forecast - 2028' report deliver an in - depth understanding of the disease, historical & forecasted epidemiology trends of Molluscum Contagiosum in the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
Molluscum Contagiosum - Disease Understanding
Molluscum Contagiosum (MC) is a common superficial skin infection caused by the poxvirus. It is characterized by painless white or skin - colored papular skin - lesions that are generally 2 - 5 mm in size, though early lesions can be smaller. The patients typically have 1 - 20 molluscum lesions, although even healthy patients may have a hundred or more lesions.
The virus is transmitted mainly by direct contact with infected skin, which can be sexual, nonsexual, or autoinoculation. It is common in children and generally presents with asymptomatic lesions; however, it can present with pruritus, erythema, and on some occasions, bacterial super infections with inflammation and pain. In normal hosts, MC is benign natured, limited to the skin, but lesions can take as long as 6 - 12 months to resolve. Immunocompromised patients can develop very large (>15 mm) and numerous lesions, and bacterial super infections

The Molluscum Contagiosum epidemiology division provide insights about historical and current patient pool and forecasted trend for every 7 major countries. It helps to recognize the causes of current and forecasted trends by exploring numerous studies and views of key opinion leaders. This part of The report also provides the diagnosed patient pool and their trends along with assumptions undertaken.
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology (Total Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum in 7MM, Gender - Specific Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum in 7MM, Age - Specific Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum), scenario of Molluscum Contagiosum in the 7MM covering United States, EU5 countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom) and Japan from 2017 - 2028.
This estimations suggests the total prevalent cases of Molluscum Contagiosum in the 7MM was found to be approximately 12,161,039 in 2017. Among 7MM, United States has the prevalent population of Molluscum Contagiosum with about 6,163,809 cases in 2017. In 2017 among EU - 5 countries, UK has the highest prevalent cases with 1,066,107, followed by Germany with 950,724 cases. While, Spain has the least number of prevalent cases with approximately 678,589.
