From: Biocompatible combinations of nisin and licorice polyphenols exert synergistic bactericidal effects against Enterococcus faecalis and inhibit NF-κB activation in monocytes

Compound A Compound B FICI* Effect
Nisin Glabridin 0.09 Synergistic
Nisin Licoricidin 0.25 Synergistic
Nisin Licochalcone A 0.5 Synergistic
  1. *FICI ≤ 0.5: synergistic effect; FICI > 0.5 and ≤ 4.0: no effect; FICI > 4.0: antagonistic effect
