English term or phrase: A herein

Al final de una patente aparece la siguiente frase:

"The discussion of a herein is not an admission that it is prior art to the present invention".

Herein entiendo que significa "en el presente documento" pero no acabo de verle sentido en la frase anterior.

Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

Reference information:
There are 6 hits for the phrase. I don´t see the sense of the phrase either, and highly suspect it is a Google translation. 1) The discussion of ***a herein*** is not an admission that it is prior art to the present invention. "The discussion herein" ... would make more sense; 2) I don´t understand "prior art" either.

I agree with you, it makes no sense to me!

agree  Charles Davis: See discussion entry: word missing (I believe). "Prior art" is a technical patent term: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/prior art
