In 2021, approximately 8.3 million adults with Alzheimer's disease will be living in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). A substantial proportion of these elderly adults will live in the US and Japan, where the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease is highest.

Scope:

- Gain insight into market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of Alzheimer's disease prevalent cases.
- Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with Alzheimer's disease.

Highlights:

- Because of the recent changes in ICD coding to eliminate confusion created by the overlap of the previous categories, earlier estimates are likely to have underestimated the prevalence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
- Alzheimer's disease will continue to affect a large number of people in all of the major markets, with more than 8 million prevalent cases in the seven major markets in 2021.
- In Japan, women are more likely to have Alzheimer's disease than men; however, this may be the result of differential survival rates between genders with increasing age, as this effect has not been observed in other markets.

DISEASE DEFINITION AND DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA
Disease definition for Alzheimer's disease
Common diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer's disease
GLOBAL VARIATION AND HISTORICAL TRENDS
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in Japan
Different methods have been used to assess disease prevalence in Spain
DRIVERS OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE EPIDEMIOLOGY
Risk of Alzheimer's disease increases with age
Chronic exposure to dietary aluminum increases risk
Higher education levels make early diagnosis difficult
Gender is a risk factor in Japanese patients, but this is inconclusive in other populations
Metabolic syndrome may actually decrease risk of Alzheimer's disease
In the US, African-Americans and Hispanics are up to twice as likely to have Alzheimer's disease compared to Caucasians
Seizures may be a co-morbidity or indicative of early onset of the disease
Depression increases risk of Alzheimer's disease in the elderly
