Backgrounds

Uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma (UCEC) is one of the greatest threats on the female reproductive system. The aim of this study is to explore the inflammation-related LncRNA (IRLs) signature predicting the clinical outcomes and response of UCEC patients to immunotherapy and chemotherapy.

Methods

Consensus clustering analysis was employed to determine inflammation-related subtype. Cox regression methods were used to unearth potential prognostic IRLs and set up a risk model. The prognostic value of the prognostic model was calculated by the Kaplan-Meier method, receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves, and univariate and multivariate analyses. Differential abundance of immune cell infiltration, expression levels of immunomodulators, the status of tumor mutation burden (TMB), the response to immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), drug sensitivity, and functional enrichment in different risk groups were also explored. Finally, we used quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) to confirm the expression patterns of model IRLs in clinical specimens.

Results

All UCEC cases were divided into two clusters (C1 = 454) and (C2 = 57) which had significant differences in prognosis and immune status. Five hub IRLs were selected to develop an IRL prognostic signature (IRLPS) which had value in forecasting the clinical outcome of UCEC patients. Biological processes related to tumor and immune response were screened. Function enrichment algorithm showed tumor signaling pathways (ERBB signaling, TGF-β signaling, and Wnt signaling) were remarkably activated in high-risk group scores. In addition, the high-risk group had a higher infiltration level of M2 macrophages and lower TMB value, suggesting patients with high risk were prone to a immunosuppressive status. Furthermore, we determined several potential molecular drugs for UCEC.

Conclusion

We successfully identified a novel molecular subtype and inflammation-related prognostic model for UCEC. Our constructed risk signature can be employed to assess the survival of UCEC patients and offer a valuable reference for clinical treatment regimens.
