PURPOSE: Acinetobacter baumannii (Ab) is a global emerging bacterium resulting in nosocomial infections such as pneumonia, meningitis, bacteremia especially in intensive care units. Since Ab is resistant to almost all conventional antibiotics, the development of vaccine is one of the most promising and cost-effective strategies to prevent infections. In this study, we sought to investigate whether small protein A (SmpA) and Phospholipase D (PLD) were potential target to elicit protective immunity against A. baumannii infections.
