ABSTRACT
A well drafted application decides the fate of an invention. Drafting plays a vital role in the success of an invention during its prosecution, management and maintenance during its tenure and turning it into cash. Drafting a patent application is one of the most important and at the same time one of the most difficult process. The applicant or his agent should so draft a patent application that it is granted with an adequate scope or ambit so as to fully serve the business purpose(s) for which the patent is meant to be used. It is here that the importance of drafting the claims in a patent must be fully appreciated, as the drafting of claims must always be done with a clear focus on the exact business needs that are sought to be served by it. That is, a business strategy perspective must inform the thinking of the one who takes up the task of drafting the patent claims. The ultimate purpose of every business strategy is to ensure that a business makes the desired amount of profit to justify the risks taken in making the investments of resources and time. Similarly, the purpose of drafting claims should be to fully serve the business strategy at hand. Even so, only a small number of well drafted patents are actually used by businesses to help them to make or safeguard their profits. (Swarbrick James, 2007).

1. Introduction:-
Wheat grass consists of carbohydrates, proteins, all essential minerals and vitamins. As wheat grass juice bears a closer resemblance to the " haemogolobin " in our blood, the juice is often called as " green blood" and the therapy using it is called as " green blood therapy" wheat grass juice is complete food. Wheatgrass (baby wheat) juice is an extremely natural food. Since Dr. Anne Wigmore rediscovered the nutritional qualities of wheatgrass juice in 1960, the juice has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world to overcome serious health problems.

However wheatgrass juice is not a panacea. If you continue to consume processed foods, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, burned foods and other toxic substances that can make you ill, a few milliliters of wheatgrass juice each day won't make much difference. Instead, try consuming a predominately (or entirely) raw food diet with organic wheatgrass juice. You will most likely experience a world of improvement.

General Concept:

  • A fragmentation pattern generated by digestion of a particular protein with proteolytic enzymes of known specificity.
  • Used in protein identification.
  • Proteases will produce fragments of a characteristic size from a protein and this can be used as a test for the identity or otherwise of two similar sized proteins.
  • Peptide mapping involves controlled cleavage of a pure protein with small amounts of a pure protease to generate peptides of characteristic, reproducible sizes.

The pharmaceutical industries world over, are in a period of crisis due to the poor number of approved drug molecules relative to the high levels of R&D investment. The drug industry is facing major scientific and strategic challenges. Conversion of genomics knowledge into new molecules seems to be unimpressive and futile. Moreover competition from generic giants is giving tough competitions to established products. Indian companies are no exception; rather, hardly any molecule has been delivered by Indian companies since time immemorial (readers are kindly requested to correct/update me, if I am not acknowledging some discovered molecule).

Abstract:
The Pharmaceutical industry represents one of the India’s strength.  The regulation of pharmaceuticals in India is generally seen to be in need of reform, and has been the subject of many official commissions since 1995. Most commentators agree that the state should intervene to prevent untrammeled market forces leading to citizens’ suffering, because adequate information about the costs and benefits of different pharmaceuticals is inaccessible to most users. But in India, a wide range of stakeholders must be considered before changes can be made to the regulatory framework.
