Esophageal cancer (EC) is known as one of the most prevalent gastrointestinal cancers, and results in the seventh highest number of cancer-relevant deaths. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have substantial roles in several biological processes. LncRNA human urothelial carcinoma associated 1 (UCA1) is announced to be enhanced in multiple types of human cancers. This survey was carried out to identify the potential role of the lncRNA-UCA1 in the progression of EC. A case-control investigation was performed on 140 FFPE tissues of EC patients consisting of 70 cancerous tissues and 70 marginal tissues samples. To determine the lncRNA-UCA1 gene expression changes, quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) method was utilized. In addition, the associations between the lncRNA-UCA1 gene expression and clinicopathological parameters were assessed. Our findings revealed that the lncRNA-UCA1 was notably up-regulated in EC tissues compared to adjacent normal tissues (P < 0.05). LncRNA-UCA1 expression was substantially correlated to alcohol drinking (P = 0.008) and socioeconomic status (P = 0.001), while shared no correlation with age, hot drinking status and stage (P > 0.05). Our data indicated that the lncRNA-UCA1 play an important role in the progression of EC and may be considered as a candidate gene in the pathogenesis of EC patients.

Cervical cancer is determined as the second highest number of deaths factor in female cancers. Here is a need to find new biomarkers for detection and preliminary prognosis, metastasis. To find new treatment to enhance the survival of cervical cancer patients, pivotal actions are necessitated to be implemented. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) appear to be the crucial modulators in various processes and critically influence the oncogenesis. The commencement and general review actions of the following lncRNAs HOTAIR, H19, XIST, CCHE1, EBIC, MALAT1, ANRIL, LET, NEAT1, BLACAT1, UFC1, SNHG16 and SNHG20 are focused in this review article. Roles of the lncRNAs in cervical cancer in terms of prognosis and tumor progression, invasion and metastasis, apoptosis, and radio-resistance are pointed out. In this review the utilization of lncRNAs as biomarkers in cervical cancer prognosis for metastasis is discussed. An overview of this review will be useful for selection of biomarkers in diagnosis, prognosis, and targeted therapy of cervical cancer in the future.
