Ovarian cancer (OC), the most lethal gynecologic malignancy, ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, largely because of late diagnosis. Recent studies suggest that the expression levels of immune-related long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a significant role in the prognosis of OC; however, the potential of immune-related lncRNAs as prognostic factors in OC remains unexplored. In this study, we aimed to identify a potential immune-related lncRNA prognostic signature for OC patients. We used RNA sequencing and clinical data from The Cancer Genome Atlas and the Gene Expression Omnibus database to identify immune-related lncRNAs that could serve as useful biomarkers for OC diagnosis and prognosis. Univariate Cox regression analysis was used to identify the immune-related lncRNAs with prognostic value. Functional annotation of the data was performed through the GenCLiP310 website. Seven differentially expressed lncRNAs (AC007406.4, AC008750.1, AL022341.2, AL133351.1, FAM74A7, LINC02229, and HOXB-AS2) were found to be independent prognostic factors for OC patients. The Kaplan-Meier curve indicated that patients in the high-risk group had a poorer survival outcome than those in the low-risk group. The receiver operating characteristic curve revealed that the predictive potential of the immune-related lncRNA signature for OC was robust. The prognostic signature of the seven lncRNAs was successfully validated in the GSE9891, GSE26193 datasets and our clinical specimens. Multivariate analyses suggested that the signature of the seven lncRNAs was an independent prognostic factor for OC patients. Finally, we constructed a nomogram model and a competing endogenous RNA network related to the lncRNA prognostic signature. In conclusion, our study reveals novel immune-related lncRNAs that may serve as independent prognostic factors in OC.
