Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An asclepiadaceous woody climber of Peru, the bark of which had a brief reputation as a cure for cancer. It is a simple aromatic bitter. The plant is usually referred to Marsdenia cundurango, but specimens under cultivation have been identified as belonging to the genus Macroscepis. It is probable that the drug is obtained from more than one species. Also written
- n. Alternative form of condurango.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. (Med.) The bark of a South American vine (Gonolobus Condurango) of the Milkweed family. It has been supposed, but erroneously, to be a cure for cancer.
