Background: Patients with uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma (UCEC) may be susceptible to the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Long non–coding RNAs take on a critical significance in UCEC occurrence, development, and prognosis. Accordingly, this study aimed to develop a novel model related to COVID-19–related lncRNAs for optimizing the prognosis of endometrial carcinoma. Methods: The samples of endometrial carcinoma patients and the relevant clinical data were acquired in the Carcinoma Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. COVID-19–related lncRNAs were analyzed and obtained by coexpression. Univariate, least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (LASSO), and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to establish a COVID-19–related lncRNA risk model. Kaplan–Meier analysis, principal component analysis (PCA), and functional enrichment annotation were used to analyze the risk model. Finally, the potential immunotherapeutic signatures and drug sensitivity prediction targeting this model were also discussed. Results: The risk model comprising 10 COVID-19–associated lncRNAs was identified as a predictive ability for overall survival (OS) in UCEC patients. PCA analysis confirmed a reliable clustering ability of the risk model. By regrouping the patients with this model, different clinic-pathological characteristics, immunotherapeutic response, and chemotherapeutics sensitivity were also observed in different groups. Conclusion: This risk model was developed based on COVID-19–associated lncRNAs which would be conducive to the precise treatment of patients with UCEC.
