Table 4 Description of the obtained clusters from Fig. 1. The descriptions are extracted from the statistical analysis in Table 5

From: Treatment outcome clustering patterns correspond to discrete asthma phenotypes in children

Cluster 1(N = 58) patients with overall good response to treatment according to the level of asthma control, moderate response to treatment according to lung function parameters (relative changes in FEV1 and MEF50) and moderate or poor response to treatment according to changes in FENO
Cluster 2(N = 87) patients with overall good response to treatment according to the level of asthma control, good or moderate levels of response to treatment according to changes in FENO, moderate response to treatment according to % change in FEV1 and poor or moderate levels of response to treatment according to changes in MEF50
Cluster 3(N = 138) patients with overall good response to treatment according to all parameters analyzed (see Sect. 2.2.)
Cluster 4(N = 64) patients with overall poor (moderate and poor) response to treatment according to changes in lung function, moderate levels of response according to FENO changes and long-term poor response to treatment according to the level of asthma control
