Doctors have cured a patient with rare blood disorder in which the patient's body did not produce enough red blood cells that could have caused progressive organ damage and early death.

The technique allows a donor's cells to gradually take over a patient's bone marrow without using toxic agents to eliminate a patient's cells prior to the transplant.
