Abstract: The antibacterial activity of five medicinal herbs, alone and together with other herbs or one of six antibiotics, against Edwardsiella tarda was determined by World Health Organization-International Collaborative Study (WHO-ICS) agar dilution protocol. Minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of the herbs were significantly lower (≤4 mg/ml) in treatments using the combinations Rhizoma coptidis+Radix scutellariae, Galla chinensis+Radix et Rhizoma rhei, Galla chinensis+Radix scutellariae, and Radix et Rhizoma rhei+Radix scutellariae than in treatments using Rhizoma coptidis, Radix et Rhizoma rhei, or Flos lonicerae (≥32 mg/ml). Almost all the combination treatments were more effective than treatment by a single herb. Combinations containing herbal medicines and regular antibiotics resulted in varying results: antibacterial effects increased with some combinations and decreased with others. Galla chinensis is suitable for use with most antibiotics, while streptomycin sulfate is suitable for use with many herbal medicines.
