Identification of long non-coding RNA signatures for squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas

Kaplan-Meier curves showing if identified prognostic lncRNA lists are associated with survival rates for adenocarcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. AC: adenocarcinoma; SCC: squamous cell carcinoma. p: the corresponding p-values of log-rank tests to test if the survival curves of high-risk group and low-risk group are same. Here, the ridge Cox regression models were used to estimate the coefficients of lncRNAs and then risk scores were calculated. Then the median value of risk scores was used as the cutoff to divide the AC/SCC patients into the high-risk group and the low-risk group.
