Uses For asparaginase
Asparaginase injection is used together with other medicines to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the blood.
Asparaginase belongs to the group of medicines known as enzymes. All cells need a chemical called asparagine to stay alive. Normal cells can make this chemical, but cancer cells cannot. Asparaginase breaks down asparagine in the body. Since the cancer cells cannot make more asparagine, they die.
asparaginase is to be given only by or under the immediate supervision of your doctor.
Once a medicine has been approved for marketing for a certain use, experience may show that it is also useful for other medical problems. Although these uses are not included in product labeling, asparaginase is used in certain patients with the following condition:
Acute myeloid leukemia (cancer of the blood).

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to asparaginase or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.
