  • Consultant slams doctor's 'magic potion' treatment for Charlie Gard

Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Centre in NY, is in the United Kingdom to examine 11-month-old Charlie.

Medical experts are scheduled to gather today at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where 11-month-old Charlie is being cared for.

Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Centre in NY, is scheduled to examine Charlie for the first time before discussing his condition with Great Ormond Street doctors and other medical experts.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital have fought the parents' bid for treatment because they don't think it will help and may cause him pain.

A judge ruled that Charlie's mother Connie Yates could be present for the gathering.

Great Ormond Street Hospital requested a new hearing after the New York-based neurologist claimed his treatment could now have a better chance of working.

Charlie has infantile onset encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

His anguished parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, are desperate for the trial to go ahead and have raised funds to bring him to the US.

They say life support treatment should stop.

But Dr Hirano, 55, believes his experimental theory could give Charlie "11% to 56% chance of clinically meaningful improvement".

The couple, who are in their 30s and come from Bedfont, west London, want Mr Justice Francis to re-open the case in light of the new evidence.

Hirano, who testified via video-link on Thursday, said it was worth trying treatment that has recently emerged.

Charlie's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, have raised £1.3 million (US$ 1.7 million) to take the baby to the USA for nucleoside therapy.

The European Court of Human Rights also decided not to intervene in the case.

In April the judge ruled in favour of Great Ormond Street and said Charlie should be allowed to die with dignity.

Alasdair Seton-Marsden, who represents Charlie Gard's family to the press, has said baby Charlie has become "a prisoner of the state".
