How might bacteria respond to agents like efflux pump inhibitors

Due to evolutionary selection pressures, antimicrobial agents have the propensity to trigger development of resistance in bacteria. Hence targeting resistance mechanisms, like inhibiting efflux transporters that extrude drugs,is typically undertaken. It would be interesting to see how bacteria would respond to these efflux inhibitors.
