Cancer Cachexia Patient Population, Treatment Algorithm, Medical Practices And Epidemiology Forecast To 2030

Cancer Cachexia Patient Population, Treatment Algorithm, Medical Practices And Epidemiology Forecast To 2030

“Delveinsight Business Research”
DelveInsight’s ‘Cancer Cachexia Epidemiology Forecast to 2030’ report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted Cancer Cachexia epidemiology in the 7MM, i.e., the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.

Cachexia is a complex metabolic multi‐organ syndrome characterized by at least 5% of weight loss, muscle and adipose tissue wasting and inflammation, as it taps into other sources of energy, namely skeletal muscle and adipose tissue when the body senses a lack of nutrition. Cachexia is characterized by increased pro‐inflammatory factors and adversely affects the patients’ ability to fight against infection and withstand treatment by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It is often associated with an elevated basal metabolic rate, despite a decrease in physical activity and total energy expenditure. Muscle atrophy results from a decrease in protein synthesis, and increase in protein degradation, or a combination of both. This results in a decreased quality of life and reduced survival rates.

Multiple abnormalities in protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism as well as peripheral hormone and neuropeptide metabolism have been reported as the cause of cancer cachexia. Investigations in humans suggest a central role of tumor‐induced inflammation as the primary cause of cachexia development.

The DelveInsight Cancer Cachexia epidemiology report gives a thorough understanding of the  Cancer Cachexia by including details such as disease definition, symptoms, causes, pathophysiology, and diagnosis. It also provides treatment algorithms and treatment guidelines for  Cancer Cachexia in the US, Europe, and Japan.The report covers the detailed information of the  Cancer Cachexia epidemiology scenario in seven major countries (US, EU5, and Japan).


Key Highlights Of The Report

As per a Japanese study conducted by Aoyagi et al. “Cancer cachexia, mechanism and treatment”, cachexia occurs in the majority of terminal cancer patients and is responsible for the death of 22% of cancer patients.

Several secondary studies suggest that the overall incidence of cachexia is high and in industrialized countries, such as, North America, Europe, Japan it is growing. It is currently estimated that cachexia affects approximately 9 million patients, which is about 1% of all patients with any disease.

It is estimated that more than 30% of cancer  patients die due to cachexia, and more than  50% of patients die with cachexia being present.

Among late stage patients, cachexia affects 50– 80% of cancer patients.


 Cancer Cachexia Epidemiology

  • Delveinsight’s Cancer Cachexia epidemiology division provides insights about historical and current patient pool and forecasted trends for every seven major countries. 

  • The Cancer Cachexia epidemiology data are studied through all possible divisions to give a better understanding of the Disease scenario in 7MM. 

  • The Cancer Cachexia epidemiology segment covers the epidemiology data in the US, EU5 countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and the UK), and Japan from 2017 to 2030. 

  • It also helps to recognize the causes of current and forecasted trends by exploring numerous studies, survey reports and views of key opinion leaders.

 According to the Cancer Cachexia Hub, approximately half of all patients with cancer experience cachexia. This rate of occurrence rises to as high as 86% in the last 1–2 weeks of life, and with 45% of patients losing more than 10% of their original body weight over disease progression.


Scope of the Report

  • The report provides insight into the historical and forecasted patient pool of Cancer Cachexia in seven major markets covering the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, France, Italy, UK), and Japan.

  • The report assesses the disease risk and burden and highlights the unmet needs of Cancer Cachexia.

  • The report helps to recognize the growth opportunities in the 7MM with respect to the patient population.

  • The Cancer Cachexia report provides a detailed overview explaining Cancer Cachexia causes, symptoms, classification, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment patterns.

  • The Cancer Cachexia Epidemiology Report and Model provide an overview of the risk factors and global trends of  Cancer Cachexia in the seven major markets (7MM:US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan).

  • The report provides the segmentation of the Cancer Cachexia epidemiology.
