RATIONALE: Radioactive drugs, such as holmium Ho 166 DOTMP, may carry radiation directly to cancer cells and not harm normal cells. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may be able to replace stem cells that were destroyed by the radioactive drug.
PURPOSE: This Phase I/II trial is studying the effectiveness of holmium Ho 166 DOTMP followed by peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have metastatic Ewing's sarcoma or rhabdomyosarcoma that has spread to the bone.
- Determine the dosimetry of holmium Ho 166 DOTMP in patients with metastatic Ewing's sarcoma family of tumors or rhabdomyosarcoma with bone metastases.
- Provide treatment with holmium Ho 166 DOTMP for these patients.
- Determine the toxicity and pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the change in tumor cell content in peripheral blood and bone marrow after treatment with this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive a trace dose of holmium Ho 166 DOTMP IV over 10 minutes on day -7 and an assigned dose over 10 minutes on day 0. Autologous peripheral blood stem cells are infused on days 7-10.
Patients are followed at least weekly for 4 weeks and then monthly for 1 year or until disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 4 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Toxicity of carmustine and cyclophosphamide can cause pulmonary injury after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.
Transplantation of STEM CELLS collected from the fetal blood remaining in the UMBILICAL CORD and the PLACENTA after delivery. Included are the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
