The effect of fluoroquinolones such as ciprofloxacin, pefloxacin and norfloxacin on adhesion of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis was studied. It was shown that the effect of the fluoroquinolones was different: decreasing or increasing. The same effect was also observed in the closely related strains of Y. pseudotuberculosis. In the strains not dominating in the polyclonal population the adhesion decreased under the effect of the fluoroquinolones. In the strains of the dominant clones the effect on the adhesion was not single valued.
