[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Sai Lakshmi Subramanian

We have been using the Bioportal API for dynamically retrieving ontologies.
I would like to report this issue:
This search:'s&ontology=NCIT&apikey={API-KEY}
returns "Parkinson's disease"

However, searching under the Disease, Disorder or Finding subtree_root doesn't find Parkinson's disease, although Parkinson's is nested under that subtree:*&ontology=NCIT&apikey={API-KEY}&

If I search for "Parkinson's" in the Bioportal UI in the "Jump To:" search box, I do not see the exact term "Parkinson's Disease" in the list of terms. 
Can you please look into this?
