Great Ormond Street Hospital has said it has applied to the High Court for a fresh hearing "in light of claims of new evidence relating to potential treatment" for terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard .
A GOSH spokesman said: "We believe, in common with Charlie's parents, it is right to explore this evidence".
Charlie inherited the faulty RRM2B gene from his parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, affecting the cells responsible for energy production and respiration and leaving him unable to move or breathe without a ventilator.
The couple, both in their 30s and from Bedfont, west London, want to take him to a hospital in the US but lost a lengthy legal battle after judges ruled in favour of doctors at GOSH, who argued the treatment would not improve the 11-month-old's quality of life.
