Dear Trish Whetzel,

for example I get with the following query for the term "bone marrow" 87 hits

but if I set the include properties to 1 then there are only 62 hits delivered:

analogously for the term "agonist" 
when executing:

I get 86 hits.

but when the include properties is "on" so to say

then there are 77.

Thank you for the investigation!

Best regards,
