Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common types of malignancy and is associated with high mortality. Prior research suggests that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a crucial role in the development of HCC. Therefore, it is necessary to identify lncRNA-associated therapeutic biomarkers to improve the accuracy of HCC prognosis. Transcriptomic data of HCC obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database were used in the present study. Differentially expressed RNAs (DERNAs), including 74 lncRNAs, 16 miRNAs, and 35 mRNAs, were identified using bioinformatics analysis. The DERNAs were subsequently used to reconstruct a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network. A lncRNA signature was revealed using Cox regression analysis, including LINC00200, MIR137HG, LINC00462, AP002478.1, and HTR2A-AS1. Kaplan-Meier plot demonstrated that the lncRNA signature is highly accurate in discriminating high- and low-risk patients (P < 0.05). The area under curve (AUC) value exceeded 0.7 in both training and validation cohort, suggesting a high prognostic potential of the signature. Furthermore, multivariate Cox regression analysis indicated that both the TNM stage and the lncRNA signature could serve as independent prognostic factors for HCC (P < 0.05). Then, a nomogram comprising the TNM stage and the lncRNA signature was determined to raise the accuracy in predicting the survival of HCC patients. In the present study, we have introduced a ceRNA network that could contribute to provide a new insight into the identification of potential regulation mechanisms for the development of HCC. The five-lncRNA signature could serve as a reliable biosignature for HCC prognosis, while the nomogram possesses strong potential in clinical applications.
