Prevalence and Incidence of Amyloidosis

Prevalance of Amyloidosis:

less than 3,000 people in the US (Mayo Clinic) ... see also overview of Amyloidosis.

Prevalance Rate:

approx 1 in 90,666 or 0.00% or 3,000 people in USA [Source statistic for calcuation: "less than 3,000 people in the US (Mayo Clinic)" -- see also general information about data sources]

Amyloidosis: Rare Disease

Amyloidosis is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Amyloidosis, or a subtype of Amyloidosis, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, who are a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when if affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Amyloidosis as a "rare disease". More information about Amyloidosis is available from Orphanet

    About prevalence and incidence statistics:

    The term 'prevalence' of Amyloidosis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Amyloidosis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Amyloidosis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Amyloidosis diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
