If my memory serves me correctly, two chemical agents - paraquat and
diquat - may be of interest to you.  Perhaps this effect was discovered
among illicit drug users who inhaled significant quantities of these
agents.  Discovery of these agents started a flood of research on the
mechanism of action and the disease - genesis processes.
I would assume that any recent toxicology text or Toxline would provide
further information.  
If further help is urgently needed, you can call me at the number given
below.
