EpiCast Report: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Epidemiology Forecast to 2022

Summary

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease of multifactorial origin that can affect any organ or organ systems, resulting in a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from dermatological involvement to multi-organ unfortunate with episodes of relapses and remissions. The disease has unpredictable natural course and high rates of morbidity and death The incidence and prevalence of SLE varies globally and the variation is attributed to a combination of elements such as the characteristics of the population studied, sex, ethnicity, geographical locations, occupational factors, familial traits, time period involved, and the diagnostic criteria used. Lupus nephritis (LN) or lupus glomerulonephritis is a serious complication of SLE in which the kidneys are affected.

GlobalData epidemiologists utilized data from country-specific studies published in peer-reviewed journals and governmental documents to wage the age- and sex-specific prevalent cases of diagnosed SLE in the respective markets. The forecast methodology and disease diagnosis criteria were consistent crossways all of the 7MM to grant for a meaningful comparison among them. The SLE prevalent case forecast followed the 1982 American College of Rheumatology classification and the LN cases were segmented according to the WHO 1982 classification.

The report forecast that 2012 had 452,053 diagnosed prevalent cases of SLE in the 7MM, with approximately 60% of the diagnosed prevalent cases (265,562) in the US alone. GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that there will be 488,769 diagnosed prevalent cases of SLE in the 7MM by 2022, with an overall average annual growth rate (AGR) of 0.81% during the forecast period. GlobalDatas epidemiological forecast projected an increase in the diagnosed prevalent cases.

Scope

-The Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends for SLE for the seven major markets (7MM; US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). GlobalData epidemiologists wage the 10-year epidemiological forecast of the diagnosed prevalent cases of SLE segmented by sex and age and the diagnosed prevalent cases of lupus nephritis (LN) for the 7MM. The prevalent cases of LN in the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK are further segmented by severity class (Class IVI). The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.

Reasons to buy

The Systemic Lupus Erythematosus EpiCast report will grant you to –

-Develop business strategies by understanding the trends shaping and driving the global SLE market.

-Quantify patient populations in the global SLE to improve product design, pricing, and launch plans.

-Organize income and marketing efforts by identifying the age groups, sex, and LN class that present the ideal opportunities for SLE therapeutics in apiece of the markets covered.

-Identify the percentage of LN prevalent cases in apiece severity class.

EpiCast Report: Acute Ischemic Stroke – Epidemiology Forecast to 2022

London (PRWEB) November 28, 2013

EpiCast Report: Acute Ischemic Stroke – Epidemiology Forecast to 2022

Summary

Stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked or interrupted, either by blood clots or ruptured blood vessels, depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients, finally leading to the death of brain cells. Stroke is a major cause of death, morbidity, and long-term disability. To forecast the incident and prevalent cases of stroke in the 6MM, GlobalData epidemiologists selected studies that used the WHO definition of stroke: rapidly developing clinical signs of focal disturbance of cerebral function, lasting more than 24 hours or leading to death, with no apparent cause other than that of vascular origin. This definition excludes cases of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), which are neurological deficits lasting less than 24 hours. This report also provides the incident cases of AIS segmented by the TOAST (Trial of Org 10172 in Acute Stroke Treatment) criteria subtypes and the proportion of recurrent cases of AIS out of the total cases of AIS (total cases of AIS = incident cases of first-ever AIS + recurrent cases of AIS) in these major markets.

GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the incident cases of AIS in the 6MM will increase by 20.10% over the next decade, from 1.25 million cases in 2012 to 1.50 million cases in 2022, with more than 50% of the cases being in the US alone. The number of prevalent cases of AIS in the 6MM will increase by 18.6% over the forecast period, from 9.48 million cases in 2012 to 11.24 million cases in 2022. The substantially higher number of prevalent cases of AIS compared with the number of incident cases indicates that a higher proportion of stroke victims survive after the event for longer time periods. However, these stroke survivors will live with serious disabilities, making stroke a major burden for the affected individual and the entire healthcare system in apiece country.

Scope

-The Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities and the global epidemiological trends for AIS in the six major markets (6MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK). In addition, this report includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast of the incident cases of AIS (all new cases of a first-ever AIS in a defined population in a specified time period) and the prevalent cases of AIS (all survivors of a first-ever AIS in a defined population at a specified point in time) segmented by sex and age (ages 2085+ years). This report also provides the incident cases of AIS segmented by the TOAST criteria subtypes and the proportion of recurrent cases of AIS out of the total cases of AIS.

-The AIS 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 6MM.

Reasons to buy

-Develop business strategies by understanding the trends shaping and driving the global AIS market.

-Quantify patient populations in the global AIS market to improve product design, pricing, and launch plans.

-Organize income and marketing efforts by identifying the age groups and sex that present the ideal opportunities for AIS therapeutics in apiece of the markets covered.

-Identify the percentage of apiece TOAST subtype among incident cases of AIS.

How do I import a transparent background image from CS3 Photoshop into CS3 Dreamweaver?

Question by Trevor: How do I import a transparent background image from CS3 Photoshop into CS3 Dreamweaver?
Okay, I am designing a website for a shop I used to work at, and I created a logo with a transparent background. I am trying to figure out how to import it (while still retaining the transparent background) into a Dreamweaver site. Each time I try to do it, it shows a white background for the 250×250 logo on the site, but I want the background to be absolutely transparent. How can I do this? Thanks in advance!
