    Aim: The present study aimed to evaluate the synergistic effect of mangiferin with antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureus. Materials and Methods: Mangiferin was isolated from Mangifera indica and tested for its synergistic activity with eight standard antibiotics against S. aureus using disc diffusion method. Results and Discussion: The results showed that 4 mg/disc of mangiferin exerted synergistic antibacterial effect on S. aureus when used in combination with four standard antibiotics. Combination with nalidixic acid, ampicillin, tetracycline, and sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim resulted in fold increase in area 69.00%, 21.37%, 16.16%, and 4.16%, respectively. At the same time, there is no synergetic antibacterial effect observed with other tested antibiotics against S. aureus. Furthermore, there is no antagonistic antibacterial effect for the tested antibiotics. Conclusion: The results demonstrated that mangiferin is a safe natural product which can potentiate antibacterial effect of some antibiotics suggesting good potential for combination therapy against S. aureus.
