The Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), London, where terminally-ill Charlie Gard is admitted and is receiving treatment for the last eight months, has requested the High Court for a hearing of Charlie's case, it said in a statement issued Friday. The hospital told the court they wanted to consider “fresh evidence” about a possible treatment for Charlie's rare genetic condition.

In a statement released Friday, the hospital said it has “applied to the High Court for a fresh hearing in the case of Charlie Gard in light of claims of new evidence relating to potential treatment for his condition.”

“Two international hospitals and their researchers have communicated to us as late as the last 24 hours that they have fresh evidence about their proposed experimental treatment, the hospital’s statement read, CNN reported.

"We have just met with Charlie’s parents to inform them of this decision and will continue to keep them fully apprised of the situation," the statement added.

Although the report did not name any hospital, the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has already offered to treat Charlie. They “agreed to admit and evaluate Charlie, provided that arrangements are made to safely transfer him to our facility, legal hurdles are cleared, and we receive emergency approval from the FDA for an experimental treatment as appropriate,” a BBC report stated.

According to the BBC report, a spokesperson of the GOSH said: "Great Ormond Street Hospital is giving the High Court the opportunity to objectively assess the claims of fresh evidence. "It will be for the High Court to make its judgment on the facts. "Our view has not changed. We believe it is right to seek the High Court's view in light of the claimed new evidence.”

"Our view has not changed. We believe it is right to seek the High Court's view in light of the claimed new evidence,” the spokesperson added.

A Guardian report stated the hospital requested a hearing of Charlie's case after a team of seven doctors from the Vatican’s children hospital, Rome, wrote a letter to the GOSH suggesting that Charlie’s condition could possibly improve if he is given the experimental drug, nucleoside therapy.

Charlie suffers from a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome that causes muscle weakness and loss of the ability to eat, walk, talk, and even breathe. His parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates from Bedfont, Middlesex, U.K., have initiated campaigns and fundraising events to keep him alive on life support system for the last eight months. The GOSH, where Charlie has been admitted, recently won the permission to turn off his life support system as his condition was said to be deteriorating.

Meanwhile, Charlie's mother, Connie Yates on Friday told the Good Morning Britain: “We are not bad parents, we are there for him all the time, we are completely devoted to him and he's not in pain and suffering, and I promise everyone I would not sit there and watch my son in pain and suffering, I couldn't do it."

"I’ve heard from the doctors that there’s around a 10 percent chance of this working for Charlie, so I think that’s a good enough chance,” she added.
