One of the very first people to study L-forms was Dr MARTIN HENRY DAWSON in 1939-1940 : immediately afterwards, on October 16th 1940, he did something truly different.

He injected a young man (dying of 'incurable' subacute bacterial endocarditis) with the juice of some mold he brewed up.

The young man lived - becoming the first ever person to get a needle of systemic penicillin.

What makes this so unusual is that L-forms are that rare form of bacteria that are IMMUNE to penicillin's effects....
