Possible Interaction: Berberine and Imipenem

Further analysis of gene expression revealed that BEB (1/4 MIC) combined with IMP (1/8 MIC) decreased MexZ, MexX, MexY and outer membrane protein (Opr)M by 38, 35, 46 and 49% in PA012.
In conclusion, these results suggested that IMP had synergistic effects with BEB against the clinical isolate PA012 via inhibition of the MexXY-OprM efflux pump.
The combination of BEB (1/4 MIC) and IMP (1/8 MIC) exhibited a synergistic effect with a fractional inhibitory concentration index of 0.375.
The synergism of BEB and IMP was also demonstrated in a time-kill test and by scanning electron microscopic observation.
Treatment with BEB at ¼ MIC in combination with IMP at 1/16, 1/8, 1/4 and ½ MIC revealed a concentration-dependent promoting effect of IMP on the intracellular accumulation of BEB and inhibition of bacterial adhesion.
