Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Solid tumors account for approximately 90 percent of adult cancers. They can appear in a variety of locations across the human body, including in the breast, lung, prostate, colon, melanoma, bladder, and kidney. Solid tumors are heterotypic aggregates of many cell types, including cancer cells, cancer stem cells, connective tissue cells, and immune cells. Therefore, solid tumors are heterogeneous among different patients, which is linked with the diverse activated signaling pathways as well as genetic alterations, resulting in prognoses or medicine resistance.

In recent years, technological breakthroughs in the multiomics era, the wide application of transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, and microbiomics, can deeply dig out the inner characteristics of each type of tumor; even those of each patient. These novel technical approaches, as well as algorithms that integrate different omics data types, can accelerate the identification of molecular patterns associated with solid tumors and guide clinical precision therapy.

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers with results that achieve novel insights into solid tumors, including, but not limited to, their mechanisms, prognoses, or personalized treatments. Articles concerning methods such as multiomics, single-cell, or in vivo experiments are welcome to the current Special Issue.

The relationship between oxidized lipid metabolism and the immunological function of cancer is well known. However, the functions and regulatory mechanisms of lncRNAs associated with oxidized lipid metabolism in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) remain to be fully elucidated. In this study, we established an oxidized lipid metabolism-related lncRNA prognostic signature to assess the prognosis and immune infiltration of HNSCC patients. The HNSCC transcriptome was obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas. The choice of the target genes with a relevance score greater than 10 was performed via a correlation analysis by GeneCards. Patients were categorized by risk score and generated with multivariate Cox regression, which was then validated and evaluated using the Kaplan–Meier analysis and time-dependent receiver operating characteristics (ROC). A nomogram was constructed by combining the risk score with the clinical data. We constructed a risk score with 24 oxidized lipid metabolism-related lncRNAs. The areas’ 1-, 2-, and 3-year OS under the ROC curve (AUC) were 0.765, 0.724, and 0.724, respectively. Furthermore, the nomogram clearly distinguished the survival probabilities of patients in high- and low-risk groups, between which substantial variations were revealed by immune infiltration analysis. The results supported the fact that oxidized lipid metabolism-related lncRNAs might predict prognoses and assist with differentiating amid differences in immune infiltration in HNSCC. Full article
