Parthenolide is a sesquiterpene lactone of the germacranolide class which occurs naturally in the plant feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium), after which it is named. It is found in highest concentration in the flowers and fruit.

Parthenolide repressed the development of endometriosis by suppressing the inflammatory peritoneal environment through the nuclear factor κB pathway.[5]

Parthenolide may have potential as a potent and novel therapeutic agent against pre-B ALLs.[6]

Parthenolide causes oxidative stress in cardiac myocytes by inducing superoxide formation by mitochondrial and NADPH oxidase in a dose-dependent manner. Parthenolide may be a useful tool for studying the roles of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of cardiac hypertrophy and failure.[7]
