Transplantation of allogeneic bone marrow is increasingly utlized as a modality of treatment for aplastic anemia and leukemia. Patients with these disorders are usually immunocompetent and are able to reject grafts. It is therefore necessary to immunosuppress these patients in preparation for transplantation from donors other than genetically identical twins.
