U.S. doctor meets with specialists treating Charlie Gard

Supporters of the parents of Charlie Gard demonstrate outside England's high court in London July 13. Charlie's parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard petitioned the court to allow them to travel with their terminally ill child to the United States

Great Ormond Street Hospital has said clinical staff are "on hand to facilitate the visit" and Dr Hirano has been given an honorary contract, giving him full access to the baby's medical records.

An American doctor who specializes in conditions such as that affecting Charlie Gard will travel to Britain next week to assess the critically ill baby.

Hirano says the therapy he is developing could improve the condition of Charlie who suffers from a form of mitochondrial disease.

Charlie will be examined early this week, in London, by Dr. Michio Hirano, a neurologist at New York's Columbia University Medical Center.

Connie Yates is due to attend a meeting of specialists which has been organised as part of the latest stage of a court fight over whether Charlie should be given experimental treatment in America.

Charlie's parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, have been trying to send their son to the United States to undergo Hirano's therapy. Charlie will die from his illness, his doctors have said.

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

The Great Ormond Street Hospital told the court their position remains unchanged, that every medical treatment option had already been explored, and that any experimental treatment would be unjustified.

Apple has also said that these new emoji will also be available on macOS and watchOS platforms later this year. As the world marks World Emoji Day , Apple has revealed its newest ones that focus on the weird and wonderful.

In a statement, the London hospital said it was "right to try" the experimental treatment prepared for Charlie by "two worldwide hospitals".

Specialists at Great Ormond Street say that the therapy is experimental and will not help Charlie.

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.

At the end of June, the European Court of Human Rights rejected an appeal by Charlie's parents that he be allowed to undergo the experimental treatment in the USA, following a similar ruling by the UK's supreme court.

The emotional case went to the UK High Court last week after the hospital requested a new hearing to consider "new evidence relating to potential treatment for his condition".

They have also failed to persuade European Court of Human Rights judges to intervene.

He will meet with doctors and medical experts at the hospital to discuss his treatment.
