Erwinia Asparaginase After Allergy to PEG-Asparaginase in Treating Young Patients With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

This clinical trial is studying the side effects of Erwinia asparaginase and what happens to the drug in the body in treating young patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who are allergic to PEG-asparaginase. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as Erwinia asparaginase, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
