    Charlie Gard: British baby to be evaluated by US doctor - CNN.com


    Baby Charlie Gard, the 11-month-old with a rare, terminal medical condition who has been the center of an ongoing legal battle, will be evaluated by a doctor from the United States.

    Charlie will be examined early next week, in London, by Dr. Michio Hirano, a neurologist at New York's Columbia University Medical Center. Hirano is developing an experimental therapy that has been used on at least one American patient with a similar but less severe mitochondrial disease. He specializes in myopathies and other neuromuscular diseases.

    Good. The fight against this was getting absurd. I don't think it will help much, but the parents will forever know they did everything that could be done.

    This is all that they want. It's all any parent would want.

    I guess if the Family (on their own dime) could and would fly in a "specialist" to try to....salvage a baby almost brain dead.. okay. I see no good outcome for the child.

    There will not be a good outcome, but the parents will feel better for having tried. The courts were going too far regarding insisting on killing him.

    He's coming to assess the child's suitability for his million pound experiment. It may or may not be given here.

    There's a lot less detail in this online report than in the print newspaper.

    Interesting news today.

    "An EEG brain scan was conducted on Sunday, the first since March. Prof Hirano has said that the scan in March did not show evidence of irreversible brain damage."

    A US Congressional committee has voted in favor of giving the terminally ill British baby Charlie Gard and his parents permanent residency so the child can undergo an experimental treatment in the country.

    Great, use the poor kid as a guinea pig while pumping up the parents' unfounded hopes.
