- Symptomatic disease after first-line chemotherapy

- Low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (recurrent or persistent)

- Symptomatic disease after first-line chemotherapy

- Multiple myeloma

- Progressive disease after autologous stem cell transplantation

- Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia

- Failed 1 standard regimen

- Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma meeting the following criteria:

- Intermediate or high grade

- Controlled and chemosensitive disease

- First remission lymphoblastic or small non-cleaved cell lymphoma at high
risk of relapse

- Hodgkin's lymphoma

- Relapsed and chemosensitive disease

- Not eligible for standard myeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplantation

- Availability of any of the following donor types:

- Related donor matched at 5 or 6 HLA antigens (A, B, DR)

- Unrelated donor fully matched by molecular analysis at A, B, DRB1, and DQB1 loci

- Single antigen mismatch at C allowed

- Cord blood that is 4, 5, or 6 match with recipient HLA antigens (A, B, DR) NOTE:
No syngeneic donors permitted

- No uncontrolled CNS disease (for hematologic malignancies) NOTE: A new classification
scheme for adult non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been adopted by PDQ. The terminology of
"indolent" or "aggressive" lymphoma will replace the former terminology of "low",
"intermediate", or "high" grade lymphoma. However, this protocol uses the former
