  Parthenolide as a behavioral cocaine antagonist

“I have used Tocris’ Parthenolide (Cat. No. 0610) for a few years in my research program searching for behavioral antagonists of cocaine. This research has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed papers and the discovery story is included in a chapter of my book The First Brain: The Neuroscience of Planarians. There are at least 4 more papers in preparation and the project is still going strong. In the initial phases of my project, I evaluated several suppliers of parthenolide and Tocris’ offering consistently came ahead in terms of customer service and compound purity, and I do not intend to change suppliers. I recommend this product and the company without reservation.”
