The prevalence rate for AML globally was found to be 0.1% or 827,671 people. AML is a cancerous condition primarily associated with the elderly. The onset of the condition mostly occurs between the ages of 50 and 65. The yearly incidence of new AML diagnoses in the US is 17.6/100,000 for people 65 years of age or older, compared to 1.8/100,000 for people less than 65 years. The incidence of AML increases with age. A significant increase in AML incidence has occurred over the past 10 years, especially in the elderly population. From the above data it is clear that the greater number of AML patients seeking treatment in the next five to ten years will result in increased usage of therapeutics drugs which in turn will drive the AML therapeutics market.
