CD8 cells: Play a major role in fighting infections such as hiv. A healthy adult usually has between 150 and 1, 000 cd8 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. Unlike CD4 cells, people living with HIV tend to have higher-than-average cd8 cell counts. Unfortunately, nobody fully understands the reasons for this. Therefore, this test result is rarely used in making treatment decisions.
