London hospital reviews ending baby's life support

But the judge insisted there had to be "new and powerful" evidence to reverse earlier rulings that barred Charlie from traveling overseas for treatment and authorized London's Great Ormond Street Hospital to take him off life support.

The mother, Connie Yates, told the Press Association that doctors at Great Ormond Street wanted to turn off Charlie's life-support on Monday but decided not to after the White House intervened.

She said no further imaging of Charlie's brain had been carried out since the April ruling.

Bambino Gesu, a Vatican-run hospital in Rome, has since offered to treat Gard and sent medical advice suggesting that treatment could be possible. "We're talking about world-class hospitals, first in the field, and that is what they prefer", she said.

Despite the arguments of medical and legal professionals, Charlie Gard's parents haven't given up their fight.

The hospital has requested that the information be presented to the court, although Great Ormond Street said in a statement on Friday that its position had not changed.

They say the U.S. clinician offering the experimental treatment agrees it will not reverse this brain damage.

But they lost a lengthy legal battle after successive judges ruled in favour of doctors at GOSH, who argued the treatment would not improve the infant's quality of life and say his life-support machine should be switched off.

It called for the family to be allowed to travel to receive the experimental treatment, something now blocked by a High Court ruling.

GOSH says it has applied to the High Court for a fresh hearing "in light of claims of new evidence" relating to potential treatment for Charlie's condition.

As Charlie's plight became known around the world, he received offers to help even from Pope Francis and U.S. President Donald Trump.

The struggle of the parents of little Charlie, a baby of 11 months, suffering from a rare genetic disorder and incurable, is not quite finished.

She said she hoped the judge would take into account new evidence as when the decision was made previously, his chance was rated at being close to 0 percent but now this has been increased to 10 percent.

He said: "It seems that if he remains at Great Ormond Street it seems that nearly certainly his life support will be withdrawn and clearly he is likely then to die".

Doctors at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University have also said the experimental drug could be shipped to the hospital in London.

GOSH said it was acting in Charlie's best interests and it would now be for the High Court to make its judgement on the facts.

Mr Gard said there is no evidence Charlie has "catastrophic brain damage". "They have advocated for him fiercely", Brad Wenstrup, Representative for OH, and Trent Franks, Representative for Arizona, said in a statement last week.

"We don't see what's dignified about him dying - we think it's dignified that he has a chance at life and if it doesn't work then we'll let him go".
