4.4     Special warnings and precautions for use

 

Rasburicase like other proteins, has the potential to induce allergic responses in humans, such as anaphylaxis, including anaphylactic shock, with potential fatal outcome. Clinical experience with Fasturtec demonstrates that patients should be closely monitored for the onset of allergic-type undesirable effects, especially severe hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis (see section 4.8). In such cases of severe allergic reaction, treatment should immediately and permanently be discontinued and appropriate therapy initiated.
