This URIs reflect an anonymous class. BioPortal does not provide functionality for anonymous classes except. This class that you are looking at is a side issue with NCIT. We have an old version of NCIT for which we did not filter anonymous classes.
We are in the progress of fixing this. As a work around you can just ignore these classes.

Subject: [bioontology-support] Empty classes at API class request
Dear BioPortal team,
When downloading all classes of NCIT, I noticed a range of classes that seem to be empty. They have an ID in the form
But no other information whatsoever. They do serve as parents to other, nonempty, classes, however. I searched for information on the web but did not have any luck. I apologize if I just missed the respective documentation page.
The IRIs do not look as being part of the actual ontology/terminology. Where do they come from and what is their meaning?
Thank you very much,
