Recent studies have demonstrated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are implicated in the regulation of tumor cell ferroptosis. However, the prognostic value of ferroptosis-related lncRNAs has never been comprehensively explored in glioma. In this study, the transcriptomic data and clinical information of glioma patients were downloaded from TCGA, CGGA and Rembrandt databases. We identified 24 prognostic ferroptosis-related lncRNAs, 15 of which (SNAI3-AS1, GDNF-AS1, WDFY3-AS2, CPB2-AS1, WAC-AS1, SLC25A21-AS1, ARHGEF26-AS1, LINC00641, LINC00844, MIR155HG, MIR22HG, PVT1, SNHG18, PAXIP1-AS2, and SBF2-AS1) were used to construct a ferroptosis-related lncRNAs signature (FRLS) according to the least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (LASSO) regression. The validity of this FRLS was verified in training (TCGA) and validation (CGGA and Rembrandt) cohorts, respectively. The Kaplan-Meier curves revealed a significant distinction of overall survival (OS) between the high- and low-risk groups. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves exhibited robust prognostic capacity of this FRLS. A nomogram with improved accuracy for predicting OS was established based on independent prognostic factors (FRLS, age, and WHO grade). Besides, patients in the high-risk group had higher immune, stroma, and ESTIMATE scores, lower tumor purity, higher infiltration of immunosuppressive cells, and higher expression of immune checkpoints. Patients in the low-risk group benefited significantly from radiotherapy, while no survival benefit of radiotherapy was observed for those in the high-risk group. In conclusion, we identified the prognostic ferroptosis-related lncRNAs in glioma, and constructed a prognostic signature which was associated with the immune landscape of glioma microenvironment and radiotherapy response.
