American Doctor Offering to Treat Charlie Gard Arrives in the UK

"Our doctors have explored every medical treatment, including experimental nucleoside therapies".

A British judge ruled a US doctor can come examine Charlie in the United Kingdom to determine whether or not- in the doctor's opinion- little Charlie has any chance of improvement with a new, experimental treatment.

Charlie suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a rare genetic disease that has left him brain-damaged and unable to breathe unaided.

Miss Yates was allowed to attend the summit after convincing the High Court judge she should be there.

Ms Yates and Charlie's father, Chris Gard, want Mr Justice Francis to rule that Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, should be allowed to undergo a therapy trial overseen by Dr Hirano in NY.

The refusal of the hospital to drop its opposition to Dr Hirano's three-month trial is a huge blow for Charlie's parents Connie and Chris from Bedfont, west London.

'As Charlie's loving parents, we are doing the right thing for our son in exploring all treatment options'.

The Great Ormond Street clinicians now caring for Charlie were also attending.

New 'Life Is Strange
We're also introduced to the new voice of Chloe, Rhianna DeVries , who seems to have devoted to proper care and effort to the role.

"Not only that, but they said it would be futile and would prolong Charlie's suffering", the hospital's statement added.

It is understood the tot will face more tests.

Dr. Michio Hirano, the American neurologist specializing in treating rare genetic conditions is meeting in London with other specialists treating Charlie Gard, assessing the critically ill 11-month-old for the first time.

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

After the fresh round of assessments and today's meeting, litigation is expected to resume next Tuesday. His parents have raised more than $1.5 million to transfer him to the US for experimental treatment, but English and European courts have ruled that his hospital can block his parents' wishes and pull the 11-month-old's life support.

Mr Justice Francis has considered the couple's latest claims at preliminary hearings in the Family Division of the High Court in London over the last few days.

An American neurosurgeon who offered to treat Charlie is due to be among specialists gathering at the hospital.

Despite Charlie's U.S. doctor's insistence that he could help the tot, Great Ormond Street Hospital medics say the terminally-ill baby has "no quality of life" and "no real prospect of any quality of life".
