CA 125

After my wife's first chemo treatment her CA125 was 3000
After second - 4900
After third -  2500
After fourth -  800
After fifth -   130
After sixth -   105

She just had her seventh treatment and had a reaction to the Carboplatin after she received about 15% of the dose. She also gets Taxotere and did not have a problem with that. We will not know the CA125 results until after a blood test next week.

My question is why would there be just a small decrease in the CA125 numbers after the sixth treatment?
