German term or phrase:Nuth
In an old research document on hemodialysis (around 1970), in a table entitled: "Ergebnisse der Hämodialysebehandlung bei verschiedenen Intoxikationen", in the column entitled "Substanz", Nuth is one of the entries (amongst others such as "Knollenblätterpilz", "Supracid", and "CCl4").
I have tried looking at this from many different angles (name of a drug, latin expression for "nothing", chemical formula for something...) but I haven't been able to find anything.
The people on the KudoZ forums will never cease to amaze me!
The paper was written by a doctor working at the hospital in Jena, which, after a bit of quick research, was in the DDR.
I think therefore that it's very likely that this is what is meant, and will probably include a footnote to explain what it is.
