Doxycycline: Can it protect against C diff?

From a recent review:

Conclusions: Doxycycline has been shown to have potential protective effects against the development of CDI. Although further randomized placebo-controlled studies are needed, available data suggest that the use of doxycycline in place of alternative antimicrobials, when appropriate, may be a useful antimicrobial stewardship strategy aimed at reducing the incidence of CDI.
