In this study, whether H9N2 influenza A virus (IAV) infection contributed to secondary Klebsiella pneumoniae infection was investigated. From post-infection onwards, clinical symptoms were monitored, examined and recorded daily for 11 days. As a result, no clinical signs were observed in the mice infected with single H9N2 IAV, implying that H9N2 IAV was less pathogenic to mice. Compared to single K. pneumonia infection, K. pneumoniae infection following H9N2 IAV infection exacerbates lung histopathological lesions and apoptosis, resulting in more severe diseases. Lung index of the mice with H9N2 IAV and K. pneumoniae co-infection was significantly higher than those in the other groups. Bacterial loads in the tissues in H9N2 IAV and K. pneumoniae co-infection group were significantly higher than those in the single K. pneumoniae infection group at 7 dpi. It demonstrated that prior H9N2 IAV infection contributed to K. pneumonia proliferation and delayed bacterial clearance in mice. Secondary K. pneumoniae infection influences seroconversion of anti-H9N2 antibody titers and the cytokine profiles. The findings demonstrated that H9N2 IAV infection facilitated secondary K. pneumonia infection, causing severe the diseases in mice.
