    What's the drug for? Has "shine" any connotations associated with it? Is it a Heart drug? Does it have to be 'Shine"?
    H also stands for health, hernia, hemorrhoids, hemorrhage, hirsuitism, hyper-this and hypo-that ...
    The conference name should reflect the purpose of the drug, to give doctors some reason to remember it and prescribe your drug. For example, "Shine" might not be the best name for a skin cancer conference.

    If I explain you in detail, it would be medical terminology that you might unable to understand. But still I will try to explain it in plain language.

    It's a drug that is administrated to heart patients, basically for people who are on dialysis or who are going for a heart transplant.

    In dialysis people have to take injections; thrice or twice a week but in case of this drug(it's also an injection) you have to take it once a week.

    In case of heart transplant, you can postpone your heart transplant for sometime may be to six months to a year.

    In conclusion, this drug is a great research by scientist at Dr. Reddy's lab.
    Now they are planing to do a seminar across all cities, where they will call in all doctors and tell them about it.

    that's why I thought to name the seminar as
    SHINE
    Showcasing Heights of Innovation & Research

    You need the standard relative pronoun 'that' or 'which'. 'What' has the idea of 'that which':

    What you need is another word.

    I think you will find that Raymott understands medical terminology as well as any doctor.

    Unlikely. I was a medical practitioner for 23 years.

    But still I will try to explain it in plain language.
    OK, I also understand lay language. I'm bilingual in that regard.

    It's a drug that is administrated to heart patients, basically for people who are on dialysis or who are going for a heart transplant.
    OK.

    In dialysis people have to take injections; thrice or twice a week but in case of this drug(it's also an injection) you have to take it once a week.
    Oh that's handy.

    Useful!

    H also stands for Hope. If I was feeling cheeky, I might also suggest Hype. (I've become rather skeptical about the Pharma industry since I left medicine!)

    Is it about this drug:
    http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/companies/article2051746.ece?css=print
    http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/companies/article2051413.ece

    "A polypill being developed ...
    The once-a-day polypill contains aspirin and agents to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. When contacted Dr Reddy's spokesperson declined to comment on the development “at this stage”.


    I don't understand why he doesn't want to talk to the press! Unless it is only a combination of aspirin and an ACE inhibitor and a statin, for example. But you say it's an injection, so I might have the wrong product.

    I can't identify the drug on Dr Reddy's homepage: http://www.drreddys.com/products/products_services.html Is it still under wraps?

    Great So I got someone who will understand what exactly I want.

    We are conducting CME, for that we need to coin a term

    you can visit the link: Cresp in Brief

    It is a drug to increase red cell or Hg

    I am playing with word RED Kindly suggest me full form that goes well:
    RED acronym of
    Reflection of Effective Development
    Regale of Effective Development
    Research Evaluation & Development
    Rare & Efficient Development
    Rare Evolution & Development
    Reliable, Esteemed & Dependable

    other names that come to mind was


    Based on color:
    Operation Red
    Mission Red
    Red Act

    Red Fusion
    Red Hope

    Based on union of three molecules:
    Confluence
    Convergence

    Why not consider "Cresp in Brief" as the name for your conference?

    It is a drug to increase red cell or Hg
    Yes, it's a generic form of Darbepoetin, which has been produced in the US for 10 years; it's a synthetic form of erythropoetin (EPO), which some sports people know as the drug they inject themself with to increase their blood cells so they can store extra oxygen, esp. at high altitudes. Maybe you'll get quite a few off-label customers as well!

    What I don't understand is the need to call the conference SHINE, if the you're calling your drug CRESP, and there's really no "shine" imagery in a red blood cell enhancer. (By Hg, do you mean hemoglobin? Hg is Mercury. Hemoglobin is Hb - it's written correctly in your slide presentation.)

    I am playing with word RED Kindly suggest me full form that goes well:
    RED acronym of
    Reflection of Effective Development
    Regale of Effective Development
    Research Evaluation & Development
    Rare & Efficient Development
    Rare Evolution & Development
    Reliable, Esteemed & Dependable
    Yes, but it's a generic that you're now producing because it's off patent in the US isn't it? It's not something that Dr Reddy researched and developed if I've read the links correctly.

    other names that come to mind was

    Based on color:
    Operation Red
    Mission Red
    Red Act
    Too dramatic for a drug for chronicly ill patients. I'd save that for when you're trying to sell a new defibrillator.

    Red Fusion
    Red Hope
    Better, I think. Was it financed by Chinese money?
    Oh yes ("Darbepoetin is produced by recombinant DNA technology in modified Chinese hamster ovary cells.") Fair enough.

    Based on union of three molecules:
    Confluence
    Convergence
    Here's Wikipedia's page on Darbepoetin.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darbepoetin_alfa

    They give it's formula as
    C815H1317N233O241S5


    That's one molecule, I think. So, that's what's confusing me, and why I was looking for a drug with several components, so didn't find Cresp.


    Thanks
    Why not play with CRESP words? Why not simply "the CRESP conference"? C(ellular) RESP(iration), which is what Hb does, and what your drug enhancers. Is that the derivation of the word?
    Anyhow, you know what your local doctors react to. I'd guess that if it's a CME conference, they're just going there for the mandatory points, and they won't care what you call it.
