Transimitting: Since the cells from the bone marrow will alter the recipient's immune system, receiving bone marrow cells from donors will an immune disorder will likely cause similar problem in the recipients. It is difficult enough to keep the host from rejecting the graft (bone marrow) and more perilous still if one has to suppress the autoimmune conditions.
