Answer

Acetylcysteine and L-3,4 dehydroproline and a combined regimen of hydrocortisone and penicillamine have been used to treat ARDS induced by inhalation of smoke from smoke bombs. Positive outcomes were attributed to early treatment with penicillamine. [17] In animal studies, acetylcysteine has also been found effective for PTFE exposure.
