The Patricia Kane protocol, often called the PK protocol, is a three-part program to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurological disorders. It includes multiple daily infusions of intravenous (IV) phosphatidylcholine (often referred to as PC or PhosChol) and glutathione, a special nutrient-dense diet that limits the intake of carbohydrates and oral supplements.
Patricia Kane, Ph.D., has claimed that this protocol "successfully reverses" ALS and has improved symptoms connected with other neurological problems, such as microbial infections, chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, autism, mood disorders, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Patricia Kane specializes in treating metabolic disorders and lipid disturbances with targeted nutritional intervention. (There is a lack of information about the area in which Kane earned her Ph.D.) She and her husband, Edward Kane, promote their New Jersey-based business, BodyBio, which provides nutritional diagnostic reports to healthcare providers. The company also manufactures and sells vitamins, minerals, and supplements to providers and consumers. Information on this site states that Kane's primary interest is in fatty acids, nutritional biochemistry, cell membrane function, and neurological disturbances and that she has long been interested in seizure disorders, autism, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis (MS), ALS, Parkinson's, CFIDS, and heavy metal toxicity.
