RATIONALE: Radiation therapy using holmium Ho 166 DOTMP may damage cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy used to kill cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy using holmium Ho 166 DOTMP plus melphalan and peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have multiple myeloma.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of targeted radiotherapy using holmium Ho 166 DOTMP when combined with melphalan and autologous or syngeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in patients with multiple myeloma. II. Determine the response rate and time to progression in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation, multicenter study of targeted radiotherapy using holmium Ho 166 DOTMP. Phase I: Autologous or syngeneic peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are harvested and selected for CD34+ cells. Patients receive an initial test dose of holmium Ho 166 DOTMP IV. Patients with adequate skeletal uptake of the test dose then receive therapeutic dose holmium Ho 166 DOTMP IV over 5-10 minutes for 1-3 days beginning 2 days after test dose infusion and melphalan IV over 20-30 minutes on day -3. PBSC are reinfused beginning a minimum of 24 hours after melphalan infusion and after ongoing radiation to bone marrow falls to less than 1 rad/hour. Cohorts of 4-7 patients receive escalating doses of targeted radiotherapy using holmium Ho 166 DOTMP until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 7 patients experience dose limiting toxicity. Phase II: Patients receive holmium Ho 166 DOTMP at the MTD from phase I of the study. Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

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.
