Serial monitoring of CA-125 is done to compare concentrations before and after treatment and also to establish a possible recurrence. Thus it can help assessing the effectiveness of treatment given.

Ca 125 test measures the levels of CA125 antigen which is a tumor associated antigen. Levels increase in patients of ovarian cancer and certain other type of cancers
Ca 125 test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.
The results of Ca 125 test when done over an interval help monitor condition of the patient and her response to treatment. Test results may be normal in patients with stage I of ovarian cancer.
