Discriminative value and prognostic value of 9 top directly-related-to-cancer lncRNAs identified by the Cox-filter method for the head and neck cancer. a Heat-map of these lncRNAs. b Kaplan-Meier curves of these lncRNAs. While these lncRNAs possessed little information for segmentation of HSCC and LSCC, they can distinguish the high- and low-risk of death groups perfectly well. In the Kaplan-Meier plot the log-rank p-value is also given. Since the number of HSCC patients included in this study is very small, the log-rank test was based on two groups instead of four groups. LSCC: laryngeal squamous cell cancer; HSCC: hypopharyngeal squamous cell cancer; LR: low-risk group; HR: high-risk group
