Primary Myelofibrosis (PMF), also known as myelofibrosis, myeloid metaplasia or chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis, is part of the collection of diseases known as myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). PMF is a chronic blood cancer that affects the haematopoietic system, causing progressive fibrosis of the bone marrow and impairs the ability of new blood cell production. Eventually, the bone marrow is unable to produce blood cells, and the spleen and liver take over the function causing abdominal swelling and discomfort.
This report provides the current prevalent population for PMF 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, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of PMF 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.
