Liu Xiaobo receiving meticulous treatment for cancer | Updated: 2017-07-03 23:27

Liu Xiaobo, a convicted criminal released on medical parole, is receiving meticulous treatment at hospital, according to an official release on Monday.

Since he was diagnosed with cancer in June, Liu has been receiving treatment at the First Hospital of China Medical University in Shenyang, Liaoning province, according to the Shenyang Bureau of Justice.

The hospital has organized a special medical team consisting of several renowned cancer experts to map out a detailed treatment plan for Liu, who is receiving meticulous treatment based on the plan.

With consent from Liu's family members, the hospital conducted a series of treatment measures such as chemotherapy, immunoregulation, nutritional support and pain relief. Liu is also taking molecular-targeted drugs, the most advanced medicine to treat liver cancer widely recognized by doctors from home and abroad.

Meanwhile, after gaining approval from his family members, doctors have also used traditional Chinese medicine as a supplementary treatment.

The hospital has informed Liu's family members of every treatment measure they have taken and the family said they are satisfied with the treatment and expressed their appreciation.

Doctors found symptoms of cancer during a physical checkup on May 31 and confirmed Liu's diagnosis on June 7 after consultations with 22 medical experts. He was then granted parole to get better treatment.

Liu was sentenced to 11 years in prison in 2009 for engaging in activities aimed at overthrowing the government.

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010. However, China considers the award reflects poorly on the Nobel Committee, as Liu was convicted of criminal acts against the State before the prize was announced.
