Elitek is the brand name of a prescription drug called rasburicase. If you are receiving chemotherapy, Elitek may be given to you over a period of five days. When chemotherapy treatment destroys cancer cells, it also releases uric acid into your blood. Too much uric acid can be harmful to your body. Elitek helps break down the uric acid so that your body can eliminate it more efficiently.
