In continuation of ongoing studies on the potential of natural products as antiprotozoal leads or drugs, it was found that the CH (2)Cl (2) extract obtained from the flowering aerial parts of INULA MONTBRETIANA DC. (Asteraceae, tribe Inuleae) displays antiprotozoal activity, especially against TRYPANOSOMA BRUCEI RHODESIENSE (IC (50): 3.38 microg/mL). Isolation of the possible active constituents led to the identification of six sesquiterpene lactones, all esters of 9 beta-hydroxyparthenolide. Two isolates, namely, 9 beta-(3',4'-epoxy-3'-methylpentanoyloxy)-parthenolide and 9 beta-(3'-oxo-2'-methylbutanoyloxy)-parthenolide, represented diastereomeric mixtures differing only in the configuration within the acyl moieties. According to IN VITRO test results, the mixture of esters with diastereomeric 3,4-epoxy-3-methylpentanoic acid was the most active constituent against TRYPANOSOMA BRUCEI RHODESIENSE (IC (50): 0.26 microg/mL) and was less cytotoxic against rat skeletal myoblasts (L6 cell line) with a selectivity index of about 9. The mixture of diastereomeric 2-methyl-3-oxobutyric acid esters was the most potent against PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM (IC (50): 1.48 microg/mL) and displayed a selectivity index of about 35
