What is rasburicase?

Elitek 1.5 mg IV Solution
Drug Name: RASBURICASE - INJ
Other Brand Names: Elitek
Uses: This medication is used to prevent high blood levels of uric acid from occurring in children with cancer (e.g., leukemia, lymphoma, solid malignant tumors) who are about to receive cancer chemotherapy treatment. When chemotherapy is given, cancer cells are destroyed, releasing large amounts of uric acid into the bloodstream. This medication allows uric acid to more easily be removed from the body by the kidneys.
