Hemopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can be harvested from the bone marrow, peripheral blood or umbilical cord blood. HSC transplantation is used to treat hematologic and lymphoid cancers and other disorders. Some reports have indicated that Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) might cure these intractable diseases--including hematological disorders, autoimmune diseases and age-associated diseases. Intra bone marrow- BMT (IBM-BMT) has been proven to be a powerful strategy for allogeneic BMT due to the rapid hemopoietic recovery and the complete restoration of T cell functions. In this review, we summarize the findings of our studies of IBM-BMT to treat some intractable diseases, including cancers such as leukemia, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune pancreatitis, age-related diseases such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease in mouse models.
