Niemann-Pick Type C Disease Forecast in 11 Major Markets to 2027 by Gender and 5-Year Age Cohort

Niemann-Pick type C (NP-C) disease is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder with a variety of neurovisceral manifestations. It is caused by mutations in either NPC1 (more common) or NPC2 (less common) genes that lead to accumulation of cholesterol and glycosphingolipids in tissues. NP-C is divided according to the age at onset of symptoms, with an earlier onset of the disease predicting higher severity and poorer prognosis.

This report provides the current prevalent population for Niemann-Pick type C disease across 11 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, China, India, Brazil) 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.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
