Abstract: The objective of this work was to study the dissolution process of sodium diclofenac granules coated with a polymeric suspension of Eudragit L-30D-55(R) by fluidized bed. Methacrylic acid-methylmetacrylate copolymer, also known as Eudragit, has been used as a pH sensitive coating material to protect drug substances prior to delivery to the human intestines. The sodium diclofenac granules were prepared by wet granulation technology using microcrystalline cellulose (MICROCEL), sodium diclofenac, and polivinilpirrolidone K-30. The granules coating operation was carried out in a fluidized bed with top spraying by a double-fluid nozzle. The dissolutions studies of the coated granules were performed in triplicate in a dissolution test station according to USP XXIII (1995) "in vitro testing requirements" Method A (paddle method, rotation of 100 RPM and temperature fixed at 37 degrees C). The dissolution mediums were 0.1N HCl solution and a pH 6.8 phosphate buffer solution, following the pH change dissolution procedure specified in USP for enteric-coated articles: 2 h of exposure to 750 mL of 0.1N HCl followed by testing in 1000 mL of pH 6.8 phosphate buffer, the pH being adjusted with 250 mL of 0.2 M tribasic sodium phosphate solution. The released amount of sodium diclofenac was periodically determined by UV spectrophotometry at wavelength of 276 nm, using a spectrophotometer UV-VIS HP 8453. The coated product showed gastric resistance properties confirming the feasibility of the fluidized bed for applying enteric coating in granules and pharmaceutical powders.
