It is the purpose of this paper to review the experimental studies which have been carried out in our group to explore the possibilities and limitations to treat hemopoietic failure induced by whole body x-irradiation by means of blood derived hemopoietic stem cells under autologous and allogeneic conditions. Some of the results have been published or are accepted for publication [1, 2, 5–17, 21]. The findings can be summarized in 5 statements supported by sufficient experimental evidence.
