ABSTRACT: Antibiotic resistant bacteria pass between humans, between animals and between humans and animals in both directions, the use of antibiotics in poultry has contributed to multiple antibiotic resistant in pathogenic bacteria and use of two antibiotics might prevent the emergence of resistance to either. In this study, synergistic effect of combined antibiotics against multidrug resistant human pathogenic bacterial isolates from poultry droppings in Akure, Nigeria was examined. Collection of samples, isolation and identification of bacteria were carried out using standard microbiological method, antibiotic sensitivity test was performed by disc diffusion method and zone of inhibition was used to interpret the sensitivity test as resistant, susceptible or intermediate while combined effects of two antibiotics were investigated by macrobroth dilution and checkerboard assay methods while the synergetic effects of combined antibiotics were calculated using Fractional Inhibitory Concentration FIC and percentage synergistic interaction was calculated. All the ten 10 species of bacterial isolates were multidrug resistant and are less resistant to ofloxacin.

The standards contain information about both disk M02 and dilution M07 and M11 test procedures for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Clinicians depend heavily on information from the clinical microbiology laboratory for treatment of their seriously ill patients.
The clinical importance of antimicrobial susceptibility test results requires that these tests be performed under optimal conditions and that laboratories have the capability to provide results for the newest antimicrobial agents. The tabular information presented here represents the most current information for drug selection, interpretation, and QC using the procedures standardized in the most current editions of M02, M07, and M Users should replace the tables published earlier with these new tables.
