Swedish term or phrase: nya data från visar att
From a description of a blood treatment:

"Nya data från visar att patienter över 80 år inte ska exkluderas från behandlingen"
=
"New data from [...?] shows that patients over 80 ..."

At first, I thought that "från" was supposed to be followed by a noun referring to the source of this data, and therefore that this was a mistake.

However, I found a couple more examples of "från visar att" online -- is this sentence intelligble even without a noun following "från"?

Explanation:
Now, it doesn't parse.
My guess, based on the repeated error, is that the object to from has been some kind of place holder or variable that has been lost along the lines.

Should of course have been "No, it doesn't parse."
Anyway, I suggest you translate it the way it is "New data from show that ..." and add some kind of explanatory note that the source is ill-formed.
