The DNA-modifying processes that are involved in B lymphocyte activation, somatic hypermutation (SHM), and IgH class switch recombination (CSR) have the potential to lead to genetic errors that lead to the genesis of B cell cancers, such as lymphoma. Given the potential contribution of these immune mechanisms to the development of cancer, assessment of the expression of cytokines, and other immune stimulatory molecules that drive B cell activation, prior to lymphoma diagnosis, may provide insights into the etiology of these cancers. Here, we review studies that have examined prediagnosis protein biomarkers for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), both AIDS-related NHL, as well as NHL seen in immunocompetent populations. Overall, these studies provide support for the notion that B cell hyper-activation is elevated preceding the appearance of AIDS-NHL, particularly those forms of AIDS-NHL that are not driven by EBV infection and that presumably arise from errors in IgH CSR and SHM. In more limited studies, it appears that dysregulation of cytokine production also precedes the diagnosis of NHL in HIV-negative persons. The availability of prediagnosis serum/plasma from cohort studies provides unique opportunities for proteomic approaches to identify novel prediagnosis etiologic biomarkers for NHL.
