Tx is bi-weekly with fu5 + avastin (bevacizumab). Cea is reliable, tested at start of tx. Cea drops significantly with neulasta/neopogen tx following chemo. Why?

In brief: Unclear question

Cea dropping is due to chemotherapy.
It is a good sign, indicates chemo is working. Neupogen/neulasta are given to increase white cell counts. These are probably unnecessary if you are only taking f-5-fu based chemo.
