Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a deadly pathogen that initially was limited to hospital and healthcare facilities but has gradually became a growing problem in healthy children and adults. Pterostilbene belongs to the phenylpropanoid phytoalexin which is involved in plant response to various pathogen and herbivores attack. The aim of this study is to evaluate the anti-MRSA action of pterostilbene in combination with selected antibiotics; vancomycin, linezolid and… Expand
Pterostilbene reduced post-antibiotic effect time of linezolid against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus
Pterostilbene is biologically classified as a phytoalexin, which is part of the plant's defense system in response to pathogen infection. The present study is to identify the type of interaction andExpand
Anti-methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus ( MRSA ) activity of an acetone extract from the leaves of Canarium odontophyllum ( Miq . )
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a global health concern that has caused nosocomial and community infections over the past decade. The emergence of multi-drug resistant strainsExpand
Antibiofilm agent pterostilbene is able to enhance antibiotics action against Staphylococcus epidermidis.
TLDR
This work demonstrates PTE synergistic effect with erythromycin and tetracycline to reduce their needed effective concentration for suppression of Staphylococcus epidermidis planktonic cells growth and biofilm formation and finds these combinations effect on the production of its virulence factors. Expand
Bactericidal Effect of Pterostilbene Alone and in Combination with Gentamicin against Human Pathogenic Bacteria
TLDR
The combination effects of pterostilbene with gentamicin were synergistic against three susceptible bacteria strains and have potential implications in delaying the development of bacterial resistance as the antibacterial effect was achieved with the lower concentrations of antibacterial agents. Expand
Pterostilbene, a Methoxylated Resveratrol Derivative, Efficiently Eradicates Planktonic, Biofilm, and Intracellular MRSA by Topical Application
TLDR
Pterostilbene has the potential to serve as a novel class of topically applied agents for treating MRSA infection in the skin while demonstrating less toxicity to mammalian cells. Expand
The relationship between structure and in vitro antistaphylococcal effect of plant-derived stilbenes.
TLDR
In vitro growth-inhibitory potential of eight naturally occurring stilbenes against six standard strains and two clinical isolates of S. aureus is reported, providing arguments for further investigation of stilebenes as prospective leading structures for development of novel antistaphylococcal agents for topical treatment of skin infections. Expand
Natural antioxidant pterostilbene as an effective antibiofilm agent, particularly for gram-positive cocci
TLDR
PTE significantly influenced the ability of gram-positive cocci to form biofilm and it effectively eradicated pre-formed biofilm in vitro; its potential for the treatment of biofilm-associated infections of Staphylococcus spp. Expand
An assessment of the acetone extract from the leaves of Canarium odontophyllum (Miq.) for antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causes nosocomial and community infections and is a global health concern. This study evaluated the antibacterial activity of acetone extract fromExpand
Proteomic analysis of bacterial response to a 4-hydroxybenzylidene indolinone compound, which re-sensitizes bacteria to traditional antibiotics.
TLDR
The activity of GW5074 on S. aureus suggests that the compound primes bacteria for the antibacterial action of ineffective antibiotics, and the identification of pathways that are impacted byGW5074 could help identify novel targets for antibiotic re-sensitization. Expand
Profiling of gene expression in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in response to cyclo-(l-Val-l-Pro) and chloramphenicol isolated from Streptomyces sp., SUK 25 reveals gene downregulation in multiple biological targets
TLDR
Interestingly, genes encoding ribosomal proteins, cell membrane synthesis, DNA metabolism, citric acid cycle and virulence were downregulated in MRSA treated with cyclo-(l-Val-l-Pro) compound, suggesting the efficacy of this compound in targeting multiple biological pathways. Expand

Bacteriostatic Antimicrobial Combination: Antagonistic Interaction between Epsilon-Viniferin and Vancomycin against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
TLDR
Findings disputed previous report that ε-viniferin acted in synergism with vancomycin but revealed that it targets similar site in close proximity to vancomYcin's action, possibly at the bacterial membrane protein. Expand
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. Expand
Eugenol: A Phyto-Compound Effective against Methicillin-Resistant and Methicillin-Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus Clinical Strain Biofilms
TLDR
It is demonstrated that eugenol exhibits notable activity against MRSA and MSSA clinical strains biofilms and shows a synergistic effect with carvacrol on the eradication of pre-established biofilmms. Expand
Evaluation of the Combined Effects of Stilbenoid from Shorea gibbosa and Vancomycin against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
TLDR
Stilbenoid compounds from Shorea gibbosa have anti-MRSA activity and huge potential as an alternative phytotherapy in combating MRSA infections. Expand
Antimicrobial Activity of Selected Phytochemicals against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus and Their Biofilms
TLDR
The overall results demonstrates the potential of phytochemicals to control the growth of E. coli and S. aureus resistant strains and to act synergistically with antibiotics, contributing to the recycling of old antibiotics that were once considered ineffective due to resistance problems. Expand
In Vitro and In Vivo Activities of Pterostilbene against Candida albicans Biofilms
TLDR
PTE had strong activities against C. albicans biofilms both in vitro and in vivo, and these activities were associated with the Ras/cAMP pathway. Expand
Emergence and resurgence of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus as a public-health threat
TLDR
Of all the resistance traits S aureus has acquired since the introduction of antimicrobial chemotherapy in the 1930s, meticillin resistance is clinically the most important, since a single genetic element confers resistance to the most commonly prescribed class of antimicrobials--the beta-lactam antibiotics, which include penicillins, cephalosporins, and carbapenems. Expand
Activity and interactions of antibiotic and phytochemical combinations against Pseudomonas aeruginosa in vitro
TLDR
The identified synergistic combinations can be of potent therapeutic value against P. aeruginosa infections and have potential implications in delaying the development of resistance as the antibacterial effect is achieved with lower concentrations of both drugs (antibiotics and phytochemicals).

The Combination of Catechin and Epicatechin Gallate from Fructus Crataegi Potentiates β-Lactam Antibiotics Against Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in Vitro and in Vivo
TLDR
C and ECg enhanced the antibacterial effect of β-lactam antibiotics against MRSA in vitro and in vivo, which might be related to the increased accumulation of antibiotics within MRSA via suppression of important efflux pumps’ gene expression. Expand
