EpiCast Report: Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2022

LONDON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

EpiCast Report: Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2022


Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a common, often clinically silent liver disease characterized by the presence of a fatty, inflamed, and damaged liver. It resembles alcoholic liver disease, but occurs in people who drink little or no alcohol. NASH is becoming increasingly common with the alarming epidemic of obesity. As obesity is a major risk factor for other metabolic syndrome diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and dyslipidemia, the incorporation of weights from the age- and sex-specific prevalence of obesity in each of the 6MM adds granularity to the forecast analysis, which allowed GlobalData epidemiologists to provide a comprehensive forecast of the prevalent cases of NASH in the 6MM.

GlobalData's epidemiological analysis forecasts that prevalent cases of NASH in the 6MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK) will grow by 8.24% over the next decade, from 29.38 million prevalent cases in 2012 to 31.80 million prevalent cases in 2022. The US and Germany will continue to have the highest number of prevalent cases in the 6MM during 2012–2022. The US will have 48.29% (15.36 million cases) of all prevalent cases in the 6MM in 2022, with the second largest annual growth rate (AGR) of 1.03% throughout the forecast period. Changes in the definition of nonalcoholic, which is the basis for defining NASH cases, the development of less invasive gold-standard diagnostic methods for NASH, and changes in the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome will influence the prevalence of NAFLD and NASH during the forecast period.


- The Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of NASH in the 6MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK). It includes a 10-year epidemiology forecast of NASH prevalent cases segmented by age (in five-year increments beginning at age 20 and ending at age =85 years) and sex in the 6MM.
- The NASH 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 9MM.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
