Doctor Michio Hirano meets Charlie Gard's GOSH specialist team

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.

The trial therapy would be delivered by Dr Michi Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Center, who gave evidence to the court on Thursday. He specializes in myopathies and other neuromuscular diseases.

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 Telegraph reported that Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Center in NY, is scheduled to visit Great Ormond Street Hospital in London on Monday and Tuesday to examine Charlie, who is suffering from a rare genetic condition and is believed to have brain damage.

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".

Dr Hirano has said he believes there is now a better chance the treatment would produce a meaningful improvement than there was when he gave evidence three months earlier. Hirano added that keeping Charlie on a ventilator would not cause him harm because he did not seem to be in any significant pain.

But judges in several courts - most recently the European Court of Human Rights - told his parents that taking Charlie overseas was not in his best interests.

Doctors from Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is hooked up to life support machines, have said the tot will die from the illness.

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

The report came as the High Court judge, Justice Francis, lifted an order that prohibited journalists from releasing the name of the American doctor.

According to the barrister presenting to the court on Charlie's behalf, Charlie's court-appointed guardian saw him last week and is concerned about the deterioration in his physical condition.
