Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a rare, but fatal, progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. ALS severely impacts physical functioning and initially presents with muscle twitching, weakness in an arm or leg, or with slurring of speech. Eventually, people with ALS lose their ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat, and breathe, which ultimately leads to death. The progressively degenerative course of the condition is a great burden for both patients and caregivers, as well as for society.
Epidemiologists forecast that the diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS in the 7MM will grow by 13.5% over the next decade, from 32,698 diagnosed prevalent cases in 2013 to 37,122 diagnosed prevalent cases in 2023. Throughout the forecast period, the US will have the highest numbers of diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS, followed by Japan.

To develop the epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS in the 7MM, epidemiologists obtained the diagnosed prevalence data for ALS from peer-reviewed journals and population-based studies in the respective markets and used a consistent methodology to ensure comparability of the results. A major strength of Epidemiological analysis is the use of country-specific studies that provided the diagnosed prevalence of ALS using uniform diagnostic criteria based on the El Escorial criteria or the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9), criteria (ICD-9 code for ALS = 335.2), to allow for a meaningful comparison of the diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS in these markets. Furthermore, the diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS in each of the 7MM were further segmented by age and sex in order to provide a more detailed analysis of the patient population.
