Numerous individuals and institutions throughout the world have contributed to the development of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for autoimmune diseases. In this review, we will summarize what we have learned at our own institution (Northwestern University), and how it has guided our therapy. An emphasis will be placed on both the scientific basis for the development of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and a summary of the data in a variety of human diseases.
