Abstract

Pancreatic cancer is a common malignant tumor of the digestive system, with insidious onset, difficult early diagnosis, easy metastasis, and poor prognosis. N6-methyladenosine (m6A) and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) play important roles in the prognostic value and immunotherapy response of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAAD). Therefore, it is crucial to recognize m6A-related-lncRNAs in PAAD patients. In this study, m6A-related lncRNAs were obtained by coexpression analysis. Univariate, the Least Absolute Shrinkage, and Selection Operator (LASSO) and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to construct m6A-related lncRNA prognostic models. Kaplan–Meier analysis, principal component analysis, feature-rich annotation, and nomogram were used to analyze the accuracy of risk models. Potential drugs targeting this model are also discussed. A prognostic model based on m6A-related lncRNAs was constructed, potential drugs targeting this m6A-related lncRNAs feature were discovered, and the relationship with immunotherapy response was studied. Finally, a nomogram was established to predict survival in PAAD patients. This m6A-based lncRNAs risk prognostic model may be promising for clinical prediction of prognosis and immunotherapy response in PAAD patients.
