No one has done a study to see if giving more than six doses in a row gives longer survival. But as part of ano

Circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D and prostate cancer survival. Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, 2016. The research has also been reported in an article by the US Vitamin D Council This article is probably easier to read than the scientific reference mentioned above.
