This is a video of emeritus professor Lida Mattman's presentation about Lyme Disease at the conference held in Chicago in 2005 by the Autoimmunity Research Foundation. During her long career she published 75 journal articles and wrote the text book 'Cell Wall Deficient Forms: stealth pathogens'. In 1997 professor Mattman was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine. 

This is professor Mattman's second to last presentation. Unfortunately she died in 2008. Together with her collegue JoAnne Whittacker she did groundbreaking work on Lyme testing. Both had cured themselves of Lyme disease first.

Her Gold Standard Culture Method has disappeared. In 2004 she already claimed that she could not find any uninfected blood in the USA anymore.
