Encephaliti

My brother has been in a coma since 7 days ago.  The symptoms are Encephaliti like.  The latest test was negative for Japanese Encephaliti.  Doctors are doing further analysis ofr his infection but siad that it might just be Encephaliti.  He is on feeding tube and needs Respiratory support.  His fever had gone down yesterday.  My family is thinking of pulling the life support system soon.  I'd like to understand what is the chance of him waking up from this infection regardless of the brain damages he will suffer.
