Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the primary malignancy in the liver with high rate of death and recurrence. Novel prognostic model would be crucial for early diagnosis and improved clinical decision. The study aims to provide an effective lncRNA-based signature to predict survival time and tumor recurrence for HCC. Based on public database, lncRNA-based classifiers for overall survival and tumor recurrence were built with regression analysis and cross validation strategy. According to the risk-score of the classifiers, the whole cohorts were divided into groups with high and low risk. Afterwards, the efficiency of the lncRNA-based classifiers was evaluated and compared with other clinical factors. Finally, candidate small molecules for high risk groups were further screened using drug response databases to explore potential drugs for HCC treatment.
