Although there is a relatively small data set on specific probiotic or prebiotic treatments, especially when the experiments also have an antibiotic treatment as a positive control, there is an increase in data being published and we should have a large enough data set to statistically analyze for treatment effects. In the meantime, probiotics and prebiotics show promise as alternatives to growth promotant antibiotics.
