Paper Abstract

Background and Objectives: Antimicrobial resistance is a rapidly evolving and emerging threat to modern medicine. Non-antibiotic approaches can be alternatives to minimize the development of antimicrobial resistance. The present study aims at investigation of synergistic effects of antimicrobial blue light (aBL) at 405 nm with oregano oil on bacterial inactivation, both of which are non-antibiotic approaches and possess different and multiple targets.
