$0.00 Activity descriptionAutoimmune diseases are caused by an overactive immune system that targets the patient’s own cells. Most individuals with autoimmune disorders respond to conventional drug therapies; however, conventional drug therapies are not curative. Although not all autoimmune diseases can be treated with a blood/marrow transplant (BMT), the primary concept underlying use of a BMT for these diseases is that ablating and “resetting” the immune system can alter the disease process.
