This study was performed to investigate the usefulness of the radiopaque material as a disintegration test of enteric coated capsules radiologically. The results obtained were as follows; 1. The times that the enteric coated capsules passed the pylorus(GI transition times) were the first 150 minute and the last 390 minutes. Therefore, the GI transition times largely differ from each animal and each enteric coated capsule. 2. The disintegration times of enteric coated capsules were similar in vitro test and in vitro test. 3. The disintegration test of enteric coated capsules using Barium sulfate, radiopaque material for the gastrointestinal track, was useful to check the time pass through the pylorus and the time enteric coated capsules were disintegration.
