Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital argue that a new treatment won't help and could make the child suffer.

Tragic Charlie was born with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, a rare and debilitating genetic condition that leaves sufferers severe mental and physical.

The American doctor who has offered to treat Charlie Gard has attended a meeting at Great Ormond Street Hospital, to help decide whether the 11-month-old will go to the USA for treatment.

British tabloid The Sun has reported that Pope Francis wants to give Charlie a Vatican passport so the court ruling can be overcome. Hirano recently put the chances of Charlie improving under new experimental treatment at between 10% and 50%.

Hirano is one of the pioneers of nucleoside - an experimental therapy which is being sought by Charlie's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates.

The parents of Charlie Gard, who has a rare genetic condition causing progressive muscle weakness and brain damage, have been fighting a legal battle to send him to the United States for the neurologist's experimental therapy.

Hirano, who has been providing evidence to the High Court via video link, suggested that now, there is clinical data that were not available in April, and he thought the therapy was "worth trying". Charlie will die from his illness, his doctors have said.

London's High Court, the Court of Appeal and Britain's Supreme Court have backed the hospital, a decision also supported by the European Court of Human Rights.

While he has not seen the baby in person, he said that the tests on Charlie's brain show "disorganisation of brain activity and not major structural brain damage". Hirano added that keeping Charlie on a ventilator would not cause him harm because he did not seem to be in any significant pain.

In addition to evaluating Charlie, Hirano will meet with doctors and others, on Monday and Tuesday, who have been caring for him.

"It may be unconventional but this case is full of unconventional aspects", the judge said.
