This work was focused on in vitro evaluation of anti-biofilm and anti-quorum sensing effects of four selected flavonoid compounds /(+)-catechin, caffeic acid, quercetin and morin/using the strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1. At a concentration of 0.5 MIC quercetin was the only compound found to potently reduce both P. aeruginosa biofilm formation (95\%) and its twitching motility. The chemical scaffold of quercetin, a common dietary polyphenol, may actually inspire development of novel and more effective medicinal agents targeting P. aeruginosa, the bacterium well known for its resistance.
