In brief: Can you clarify?

Are you referring to autoimmune types of connective tissue diseases, such as rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis? These conditions are caused by inflammation driven by immune cells.
Obviously bone marrow is an active immune organ, involved in both innate and adaptive immune function. Destruction of bone marrow from cancer, or cancer treatment, drastically effects immune responses.
