Bone Marrow Transplant

Autologous or Syngeneic SCT Followed by Donor SCT for Multiple Myeloma (FHCRC-2070)
Tandem Autologous HCT / Nonmyeloablative Allogeneic HCT from HLA-Matched Related and Unrelated Donors Followed by Bortezomib Maintenance Therapy for Patients with High-Risk Multiple Myeloma
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Graft Versus Host Disease
Multiple Myeloma
Plasma Cell Neoplasm and Plasma Cell Neoplasm
Phase II FHCRC-2070

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Giving more chemotherapy together with total-body irradiation before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of any cancer cells that remain. It also stops the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. Undergoing an autologous or syngeneic stem cell transplant followed by a donor stem cell transplant and bortezomib may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of two different ways of giving an autologous or syngeneic stem cell transplant followed by a donor stem cell transplant and bortezomib and to see how well they work in treating patients with newly diagnosed high-risk, relapsed, or refractory multiple myeloma.
