Abstract:  Inductively Coupled Plasma Source Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) has
           been applied with increasing frequency in the biomedical
           studies of nutrition,drug metabolism,and toxicology. ICP-MS
           provides reliable isotope ratio determinations and superior metal 
           concentration sensitivity. When combined with compound
           separation technology as part of the sample induction phase, ICP-MS
           enriches the tools available for studies of human metabolism
           and heavy metal poisoning. Stable isotope analysis methods for
           biological materials are well established with conventional     
           approaches. These methods, an extensive literature database, and
           nutritional, pharmacological, and toxicological models of animals
           and humans can be expanded with the data throughput of ICP-MS.
           Examples be described to illustrate the role of ICP-MS in nutrition
           ,toxicology, and biomedical research.
