June 6 (Reuters) - Shareholders of Canadian medical isotope supplier Nordion Inc voted on Friday to support a friendly $805 million friendly takeover bid from U.S. based Sterigenics International, clearing one of the major hurdles to a deal.

More than 76 percent of votes cast by shareholders backed the offer, which satisfied the requirement for two-thirds support. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba)
