The Titan Atlas lost the battle against the gods. As punishment he had to carry the world on his shoulders.
The Know-How area Head & Neck is related to Oral Medicine and Oncology. The area consists of head-, neck- and throat diseases including Meniere’s disease and head and neck problems. The atlas bone, which carries the cranium, is often overlooked as a cause of pain “from top to bottom”. If the atlas bone is out of place, the function of the whole spine is impaired.
“Women receive worse healthcare than men”. Part truth, part myth.
Nowhere in the world is mother- and childcare as developed as it is in the Nordic countries. Nowhere is the infant mortality rate as low. But in other areas, women have received worse care. The health of women like the mother and her newborn baby are greatly prioritised by POA Pharma.
Nutrition with medical purposes for specific metabolic indications.
This is one way of describing Metabolic diseases – a competence area that previously was known as dietary treatment.

The subject integrates different scientific disciplines such as biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, medicine, toxicology, food science, epidemiology and public health science.
”Man is a bowel surrounded by a body”, as somebody once said.
Our digestive organs are the means for our nutritional uptake.

The medical term for the speciality within the digestive system is gastroenterology. It is an area within the scientific discipline of internal medicine.
The development of your brain is more unique than your fingerprint.
Within this Know-How area POA has gathered products that are related to neurological diseases, psychiatric problems and addictions. Patients often display co-morbid conditions.

A frequent need for micturition during the night is an indicator for poorer survival, a new study claims.
Urology, a relatively young surgical speciality, is the study of the urine organs of both sexes as well as the genitals of the male, and their diseases. Patients referred to urologists are those with kidney diseases, urine incontinence, and tumour diseases. Often urologists and oncologists cooperate. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in the male. Within the last few years a number of new treatments have been introduced: the combination of radiation therapy and hormone therapy, placement of radioactive “seeds” in the prostate bladder as well as new pharmaceuticals.
