BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Antibiotic combinations are used to enhance antibacterial efficacy and to prevent the development of resistance. In this study, the in vitro activities of antibiotic and phytochemical combinations against Pseudomonas aeruginosa were tested by the fractional inhibitory concentration method, derived from the minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of the agents in combination. METHODS The antimicrobial activity of phytochemicals, alone and in combination with antibiotics… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Combination antibiotic-phytochemical effects on resistance adaptation in Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The phytochemicals were able to potentiate antibiotic activity; thereby, increasing the antibacterial efficacy and time span of the treatment with a common antibiotic.
Synergistic interactions of quercetin with antibiotics against biofilm associated clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in vitro
TLDR
The findings show that quercetin combinations can enhance the treatment outcome against P. aeruginosa infection and this approach may reduce antibiotic overuse and selection pressure.
Prevention of emergence of fusidic acid and rifampicin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus using phytochemicals
TLDR
The results suggested prevention or delay of fusidic acid and rifampicin resistance by adding synergistic phytochemicals to aid in selection for resistance to antibiotics.
Effects of Luteolin and Quercetin in Combination with Some Conventional Antibiotics against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of flavonoids luteolin (L) and quercetin + luteolin (Q + L) in combination with commonly used antibacterial agents against methicillin-resistant
Bactericidal antibiotic-phytochemical combinations against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The study suggests a possible incorporation of effective phytochemicals in combination therapies for MRSA infections.
Synergistic Effect of Quercetin in Combination with Sulfamethoxazole as New Antibacterial Agent: In Vitro and In Vivo Study
TLDR
The in vivo treatment of S. aureus infection with S+Q combination decreased the sulfamethoxazole side effects while increasing its antibacterial activity, which supported the therapeutic use of this combination in humans.
Antibiotic additive and synergistic action of rutin, morin and quercetin against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
The flavonoids when used in combination with antibiotics were found to increase each other activity against test bacteria and synergism was observed in a few cases.
Synergistic antibacterial effects of Buddleja albiflora metabolites with antibiotics against Listeria monocytogenes
TLDR
The data highlighted that the combinations of secondary metabolites from B. albiflora and specific antibiotics were useful for the treatment of pathogens, which might help prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance through improving antibiotic effectiveness.
A combination of ellagic acid and tetracycline inhibits biofilm formation and the associated virulence of Propionibacterium acnes in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
A novel anti-biofilm combination was determined to effectively inhibit biofilm formation by P. acnes without affecting its growth, therefore potentially limiting the possibility of the bacterium attaining resistance.

Antibacterial Activity of Allicin Alone and in Combination with β-Lactams against Staphylococcus spp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
Allicin-β-lactam combinations offer promise of clinical utility especially if synergism is demonstrated by in vivo experimental studies, and in the presence of 1/8 to 1/2 the MIC of allicin, the MIC90 values of cefazolin, oxicillin, and cefoperazone were reduced.
Antibacterial activity of plant extracts and phytochemicals on antibiotic-resistant bacteria
The antimicrobial activity of plant extracts and phytochemicals was evaluated with antibiotic susceptible and resistant microorganisms. In addition, the possible synergistic effects when associated
In vitro activity of gatifloxacin alone and in combination with cefepime, meropenem, piperacillin and gentamicin against multidrug-resistant organisms.
TLDR
Gatifloxacin was synergic with the beta-lactams piperacillin, cefepime and meropenem, and with gentamicin against some drug-resistant pathogens.
Antibiotic synergy against biofilm-forming Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
Eight antibiotics exhibited antimicrobial activity individually and/or in combinations against 20 wild-type biofilm-forming strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and antibiotic synergy was observed for the combination of aztreonam and ciprofloxacin.
Drug Combinations in Antibacterial Chemotherapy
  • M. Barber
  • Medicine, Biology

TLDR
Drug combinations to delay the emergence of drug-resistant strains should be considered for infections due to staphylococci and coliform bacilli, particularly in hospitals, and when it is desired to use drugs to which these bacteria readily develop resistance.

TLDR
Tigecycline, a minocycline derivative, received approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration for treatment of complicated skin and skin structure and intraabdominal infections; the agent is also active against a variety of multidrug‐resistant bacteria.
Role of fosfomycin in a synergistic combination with ofloxacin against Pseudomonas aeruginosa growing in a biofilm
TLDR
Fosfomycin induced dramatic changes in cell shape and the outer membrane structure responsible for the altered membrane permeability of both surface and embedded biofilm cells and this synergistic killing effect was confirmed by a combined study using SEM, TEM, and CLSM.
Synergy and antagonism of combinations with quinolones
  • H. Neu
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2005
TLDR
Fluoroquinolones should be combined with other agents not to achieve synergy, which is extremely variable, but to provide activity against bacteria inadequately inhibited by the fluoroquolones.
