ABSTRACT
The genetic resources and indigenous communities traditional knowledge of developing countries is being exploited by the Developed countries in the name of patents for inventions that are derived from genetic  resources. The exploitation of genetic resources and indigenous communities traditional knowledge by the developed countries in the name of patents on the inventions derived from those genetic resources is actually bio-piracy.  Protection of the TK of the local and indigenous communities appears to be one of the most debatable and complex issues. This paper brings out the role of domestic IPR constitution that looks to protect traditional system of medicine and associated TK in Indian sub-continent. Further, it attempts to validate the necessity of introduction of a national TKDL, which can be utilized as an evidence of the 'prior art' by the examiners of patent offices, nationally as well as internationally. Thus, it aims to address the concerns relating to the creation of TKDL in India.

With the advent of modern times, stress and pollution have led to major effect on rise of death toll due to chronic diseases. Such diseases are major cause of concern for the medical society. Lycopene, a carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes and its products has antioxidant properties due to the presence of numerous double bonds. Increased consumption of lycopene containing diet has been proposed to offer a protection against many types of cancers and cardio-vascular diseases. Its potential role as nutraceutical has been suggested in many studies. The present review deals with fundamental biochemistry, bio-availability and benefits of lycopene rich diet and its relation with some chronic diseases like various forms of cancers and cardiovascular diseases.
