Treatment outcome in a pilot study indicates that it is possible to assess likelihood ratios of homeopathic symptoms. Entries in repertory rubrics can be validated, but must still be handled carefully. Prospective research is the only acceptable way. Software to support this research must be carefully designed to export correct data.
