The doctor, whose name and institution can not be named because of a court order, told Britain's High Court that new clinical data has emerged about the effectiveness of the treatment proposed for 11-month-old Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and is on life support. However, the hospital applied last week for a new hearing after doctors from two global hospitals approached Great Ormond Street Hospital offering evidence about the possibility of treating the infant.
Since the High Court hearing in March, the proposed treatment for Charlie has been tested on mice, showing longer life and improved brain function.
The judge also lifted a restriction barring the naming of the doctor offering hope to Charlie's family.
Their appeal for calm followed a warning by the judge the previous day that "vile" abuse had been directed at staff at Great Ormond Street hospital, which is involved in the legal action.
Sound Off! CatholicCulture.org supporters weigh in. This life support has been precarious, however, as hospital officials have fought since April, against the parents' wishes, to end Charlie's life, claiming it would be in the infant's best interest to "die with dignity".

The judge in the Charlie Gard case has ordered little boy's head to be measured to determine if there is any brain development.
During the proceedings on Friday, the judge clarified that he had not held Charlie's parents in any way responsible for encouraging such behaviour and spoke of his desire to be as sensitive as possible towards them.
New York Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Irving Medical Center have both announced they would be willing to take in Charlie - though they said a few conditions need to be met. Charlie needs to be transferred safely, "legal hurdles" cleared and it needs to "receive emergency approval from the FDA for an experimental treatment as appropriate".
