cyclodextrin

(sī-klō-dĕks′trĭn)
A molecule made of linked dextrose subunits that can be used in drug delivery in the body. Cyclodextrins have lipid centers surrounded by water-soluble exteriors. This combination allows fat-soluble medicines to be carried through the bloodstream to lipid-rich organs like the brain.
