The parents said it was the first time they had been told about the latest results in the crucial test of brain function.

The Gard case attracted vocal supporters who backed the family's case online through social media and in person outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London, where case was heard.

The protracted legal battle between GOSH and Chris Gard and Connie Yates centres around the hospital's treatment of the baby.

But Yates and Gard, convinced he could recover, rejected the advice that the kindest thing would be to switch off the machines keeping him alive, so the hospital went to court and got the order they requested.

Speaking outside the court Monday, Yates said: "Charlie did have a real chance of getting better.

Thousands of abusive messages have been sent to doctors and nurses whose life's work is to care for sick children." said Mary MacLeod chairman of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The parents said too much time was spent in court battles, and that their son had lost his chance to improve.

Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital say that the treatment won't help and could cause the child pain.

The High Court in London had to decide this week to confirm or not his decision in April to advocate for the end of the retention life of the baby, on the main ground that it was not in the best interest of the child to extend the care.

He says tests show that the baby has irreversible muscular damage.

He added: "The parents wish to treasure their remaining time with Charlie, however short that may be". His doctors have concluded that nothing more can be done for him and that he should be taken off life support.

"These parents should know that no parent could have done more than they did for their child", said Justice Nicholas Francis, who is presiding over the case.

The parents of critically-ill British child Charlie Gard have ended their legal fight to take him to the United States for experimental treatment.

But the family's attorney, Grant Armstrong said nothing further could be done and that it was "worthy of a Greek tragedy" that they had to withdraw their appeal just as they were about to present new evidence to the court.

According to reporters who were in court on Monday, Yates told the hearing that her son's illness had "deteriorated to the point of no return".

Charlie Gard, as RDR has written in the past, has a rare mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome that has left the 11-month old on life-support.

That message came three days after a statement released by the Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life, signed by Italian Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, which appeared to express sympathy for the court ruling preventing the parents from taking the child to the USA for treatment.
