PALO ALTO, Calif., March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian (NYSE: VAR) today announced it has received clearances from the U.S. antitrust authorities and the German Federal Cartel Office (FCO) on the proposed acquisition of all of the outstanding shares in Sirtex Medical Limited (ASX: SRX) ("Sirtex"). The U.S. antitrust authorities granted early termination of the waiting period under the U.S. Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.
