United States doctor offering baby Charlie Gard treatment prepares for London examination

Loose Women Charlie Gard ITV Kaye Adams

Dr. Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at New York's Columbia University Medical Center and chief at the Division of Neuromuscular Disorders, will travel to London where the 11-month old boy is being held after the Family Division of Britain's High Court in London denied his parent's request to travel to the USA for experimental medical treatment.

Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Center in NY, will visit Charlie at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where the 11-month-old now resides.

The doctor estimated there could be a 10% chance of improvement in Charlie's muscle strength and a "small but significant" improvement in brain function.

He said he would make a final ruling on the case on July 25, after hearing evidence about the outcome of the July 17 meeting between Dr. Hirano and the GOSH doctors.

In April, the judge ruled in favour of Great Ormond Street and said Charlie should be allowed to die with dignity. "The Holy Father follows with affection and emotion the story of Charlie Gard and expresses his own closeness to his parents", read a July 2 statement issued by Vatican spokesman Greg Burke.

Various world figures have weighed in to support his parents, including the Pope and US President Donald Trump and his Vice President, Mike Pence.

Dr Hirano withdrew his request for anonymity when he heard it would be opposed by the Press Association news agency and other reporters.

However, an extension was given by High Court Judge Nicholas Francis in order to be "open-minded about the evidence" presented by Dr. Michio Hirano.

According to The Sun, seven specialist doctors, including one in the United Kingdom, have recommended Charlie receive this treatment as a result.

After a new hearing, a British judge will permit Dr. Michio Hirano to come to London and examine Charlie.

Charlie Gard has been cared for at Great Ormond Street Hospital, in London. The judge is considering their claims at a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.

A team of seven worldwide medical experts had alerted the hospital that fresh, unpublished data suggested that an experimental drug could improve Charlie's brain condition. Today is much quieter as the parents and supporters welcome the new hope given them by Mr Justice Francis. Charlie's parents, who are from Bedfont, west London, have already lost battles in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in London to allow him to travel to the United States for treatment.

The parents' devastating and exhausting fight seemed headed in a downward spiral, as various courts consistently upheld the hospital officials' decision.

That decision was upheld by the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

The judge in the Charlie Gard case has ordered little boy's head to be measured to determine if there is any brain development. The judge sought a compromise in which Yates could attend if a chair be appointed to lead the meeting, with Charlie's mother due to indicate her consent late on Friday.
