Is there a stem cell component to cladribine?

Is there a stem cell component to cladribine? I recently received 5 infusions to treat hairy cell leukemia and I'm wondering what my oncologist might have meant when he said the treatment would do something like a "computer reset" to my bone marrow. Do you have any insight into this? Please let me know. Thank you.
