Thanks for the question.

I have posted the two main studies regarding the use of vincristine below:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11860242
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23527952

All of the studies in dogs are really based on one single dose of vincristine. Most cases really only require this one dose. It is really a way of ‘kick starting’ treatment and platelet release from the bone marrow. I have never personally experienced a case that has ever required a repeated dose.

Hope that helps.
