Rasburicase Dosing

When using rasburicase (Elitek®), the dosing guidelines your healthcare provider will follow will primarily be based on how much you weigh. Other factors that may affect your amount include your clinical situation, such as your levels of uric acid.
 
Rasburicase is given as an infusion, which is a slow injection into a vein. It is usually given once a day for up to five days.
 
A healthcare provider will administer the rasburicase infusion in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic. It will take about 30 minutes to receive each dose.
