    Subject: Asparaginase Premedications

    My institution is looking into pegaspargase pre-medications. We currently premedicate with pepcid and benadryl however, we are considering adding hydrocortisone as well. Can others speak to what premedications are used at their institutions for pegaspargase (erwinia and rylaze also included)?

    Thank you,
