Medical Definition of T8 cell

1. A type of immune cells, T8 cells close down the immune response after it has destroyed invading organisms. T8 cells are sensitive to high concentrations of circulating lymphokine hormones and release their own lymphokines after an immune response has achieved its goal, signalling all other participants to cease their attack. Some memory B-cells remain to ward off a repeat attack by the invading organism. T8 cells are also called t-suppressor cells. (12 Dec 1998)
