When you make requests via the API, we only return a subset of available attributes for performance reasons. You can override this behavior using the “include" parameter, documented in the General Usage section of the REST API documentation:

For example, I modified the REST API call you listed below to use “include=all” (return all attributes):<>

… and the properties you mentioned are returned (in the properties array):

While using the MedlinePlus Topic ontology, I noticed a discrepancy between the data available in the UI vs the API

Certain properties aren't available on the API, but are visible in the UI, such as "MP HEALTH TOPIC URL" and "MP OTHER LANGUAGE URL". It is important to have access to these properties to properly cite the original source of the information.

Please let me know if there's another way to access this data via API - thank you!
