There is not a good biomaker that is closely related to survival time for bladder cancer(BLCA), The aim of the study is to identify a miRNA signature that could predict prognosis in BLCA patients according to the data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). a total of 377 BLCA patients were finally enrolled in the study. The three miRNA signature was identified by Multivariate Cox proportional hazards analyses that common clinical variables were controled. The three microRNA signature showed greater predicting prognosis capacity for predicting 5-year survival in BLCA with an AUC of 0.664, 0.681 and 0.668 in Train set, Test set and Total set respectively. Furthermore, there was a significant difference between high score and low score in Total set(P=3e-05), Test set(P=0.00435) and Train set(P=0.00143), respectively. Therefore, these results provided a new prospect for prognostic biomarker of BLCA.
