Baby Charlie Gard's new day in court

Baby Charlie Gard's new day in court

Charlie's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, have until Wednesday to submit new written evidence regarding the viability of having Charlie treated overseas with experimental nucleoside therapy.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where...

The Great Ormond Street Hospital reportedly blocked a US pastor from praying over Charlie Gard Sunday, sparking further outrage over the hospital's handling of Gard's case.

The 11-month-old suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a rare genetic illness which leads to progressive brain and muscle damage.

Francis, the judge, insisted there had to be "new and powerful" evidence to reverse earlier rulings barring Charlie from traveling overseas for treatment.

Both the Vatican paediatric hospital and Pope Francis have expressed their support for Charlie.

The re-opening of the case at London's High Court may allow Charlie to receive the therapy treatment at his current hospital or overseas.

The couple in their 30s from Bedfont in west London handed in a petition with 350,000 signatures on Sunday to Great Ormond Street.

Ms Gollop told the court: "The hospital has been trying to do what is best for Charlie and his parents", and that as Charlie's parents had suggested GOSH medics were not doing so, had contacted the clinic and others to see if they were prepared to look after Charlie.

Donald Trump and the Pope have offered to help baby Charlie, with the US President saying he would be "delighted" to help him secure treatment in the United Kingdom after courts ruled his life-support machine should be turned off. GOSH determined that he should be taken off his life support.

He told Ms Yates that he has an "open mind" and will consider the evidence he receives, reported court journalist Joshua Rozenberg.

In a debate in court about the definition of Charlie's structural brain damage, Ms Gollop said: "Charlie can not be in a better condition than he was in April... because it is a depleted syndrome [that he suffers from]". The hospital in NY also offered to ship the experimental treatment in the U.K.as another option. "Independent medical experts agreed with our clinical team that this treatment would be unjustified", the hospital said.

They said Charlie's case involved "cutting edge genetic science". "This is not an issue about money or resources, but absolutely about what is right for Charlie", it added.

The decision comes after a team of seven worldwide medical experts alerted the hospital that fresh, unpublished data suggested that an experimental drug could improve Charlie's brain condition.

"The whole world knows about us and about Charlie and our fight".

During the original hearings, doctors said it would be kinder for him to move to an end-of-life care regime, as his condition has "deteriorated hugely" since he first came to the children's hospital.
