Hello Ines,

I believe you can get what you want by adding "include=properties" to your query, as in

This will include all the annotation properties, one of which is 'classified_as'. (You may wish to append ',notation' to the above so that you can see the concept for which the properties apply, when there is more than one concept returned by the search.)

Hello BioPortal team,

On the page of the MedDRA term 'Blood pressure Lowered' on the interface (, there is the information 'Classified as: Blood pressure decreased'.
This redirects to the term 'Blood pressure decreased'. This latter concept is the Preferred Term (PT) and the former is the Lower Level Term (LLT) in MedDRA. The PT has the ID 10005734.

How can I get that relationship via the API?

When I search the LLT (10024982) I get the concept but it doesn't include the ID or name of the PT (10005734).
I'm using ''

I would like to find the PT (Blood pressure decreased - 10005734) upon submitting the LLT (Blood pressure lowered - 10024982).

I also tried the Annotate service with the hierarchy parameter but it loosk like the LLT>PT is not included as a level in the hierarchy, as it jumps straight from the LLT to the higher level terms.

Thank you,
