Table 4 Performance characteristics of TMEM178 expression (2−∆Ct) in discrimination between different degrees of asthma severity

From: A study of nasal epithelial cell gene expression in a sample of mild to severe asthmatic children and healthy controls

Variables AUC (95% CI) Cutoff points Sensitivity (%) Specificity (%) P value
Control from asthmatics 0.967 (0.938–0.995) 5.426 86.7 92.9 < 0.001(HS)
Mild from moderate 0.870 (0.779–0.961) 4.176 79.4 80.8 < 0.001(HS)
Mild from severe 0.991 (0.970–1) 2.982 97.1 100 < 0.001(HS)
Moderate from severe 0.950 (0.877–1) 2.617 92.3 90 < 0.001(HS)
