          I don't know whether this might be relevant, but digging in 
          my memory I remember a conversation with Mark Lowdell 
          (somewhere in London, UK) more than 3 years ago. He 
          mentioned one of the CD8 chains can actually shed of and 
          thus lead to decreased CD8 detection.

 In response to the question raised by Karen Mann:
 Decreased numbers of CD8+ cells have been described in autoimmune diseases, 
 specifically in rheumatoid arthritis. A decrease in the CD8 cell count is not 
 specific, however.
