Abstract: Klebsiella pneumoniae is the most common caof nosocomial respiratory tract, and the second most frequent caof Gram-negative bacteraemia and urinary tract infections. Drug resistant isolates remain an important hospital-acquired bacterial pathogen, prolong hospital stays, and are especially problematic in high impact medical areas such as intensive care units. A variety of preventive measures were applied to reduce such incidences.The immune therapies for Klebsiella pneumoniae include active immunization and passive immunization. Many trials for constructing effective vaccines are followed, including inactivated vaccines, polysaccharide vaccine, conjugate vaccine, protein vaccine, and nano vaccine. This review was about the development of vaccines for the prevention of Klebsiella pneumoniae.

Key words: Klebsiella pneumoniae, drug resistant, immune therapy, vaccine
