Antibiotics stand as the mainstay of treatment against lifethreatening infection, to humans, with bacterial pathogen. How ever, the acquirement and dissemination of bacterial antibiotic resistances add up to a havoc threat to modern medicine, and hence, in the absence of alternate antibiotic-based treatment regimen, antibacterial combination is employed progressively in order to get augmented effect of conventionally used existing antibiotics against antibiotic resistant strains [1-3], following in vitro experimentations [1,2,4]: agar dilution checkerboard, time-kill studies and double disk synergy test.
