Abstract: 

INTRODUCTION: it has been recently documented that smoking is the important causative agent of obstructive pulmonary disease. That is why we decided to do a research in this field. For evaluation of respiratory tract function or pulmonary difficulties we used ST-NBT and SP- NBT and total IgE tests in test or control groups.
METHOD & MATERIALS: In this study the test group was composed of 43 non-smoking bakers with the middle age of 40.5 years old (duration of baking bread varied 8 to 18 years). The control group consisted of 31 non-smoking asthmatic patients with middle age of 37.26 years old and twenty healthy non-smoking females with middle age of 36.8 without secondary infection.
RESULTS: In this study there were significant differences in total IgE levels between test and control groups (p=0.05). There were no significant differences in SP-NBT test between test and control groups. But there were significant differences in ST-NBT test between bakers and asthmatic and normal function individuals.
Discussion: Smoke as a stimulator induces difficulties in immune responses and normal function of respiratory tract. There will be some recommendations for smokers and bakers
