I wonder what the optimal platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection schedule is to treat a tendinopathy.

(1) showed that two PRP infiltrations performed in a one-week interval didn't show any improvement over a single PRP infiltration. I wonder whether there are other studies of that kind, e.g. a study that would compare a single PRP vs two PRP infiltrations performed with a longer interval.

I am mostly interested in the epicondyles of the humerus
