    “The agreement with POA Pharma represents an important achievement for Primex Pharmaceuticals and underscores our commitment to making OZALIN® available to Anaesthetists across all EU member states,” said Alan Knox, Primex’s Group CEO. “We are confident that POA Pharma expertise in the field of anaesthesia, coupled with their understanding of the Nordic countries, will greatly benefit children requiring premedication or procedural sedation.”
