Many drugs go after the unique viral enzymes but do any target their lipids? Viral membranes are of course similar to the host membrane but might have a different composition and do have a different curvature and protein composition. Is anybody aware of research or even existing drugs that attempt to hit the lipid envelope of viruses to limit them?
There are evolved molecules that target the lipid membrane, for example. A subgroup of those pore-forming toxins are cholesterol-dependent, so they might target a membrane high in cholesterol over one low in it. I'm trying to think out of the box here whether properties of the viral lipid membrane could be exploited in a similar way.
