Myocardial Ischaemia Reduction with Aggressive Cholesterol Lowering Cardiology. A trial that asked whether early, rapid and profound cholesterol-lowering therapy with atorvastatin reduces early recurrent ischaemic events in patients with unstable angina or non-Q-wave MI
Conclusion A primary endpoint of major acute coronary events (MACE) occurred in 14.8% of atorvastatin patients and 17.4% of placebo patients (p = 0.05). Atorvastatin reduced the risk of ischaemia (6.2% vs. 8.4%; p = 0.02), but did not reduce the risk of MACE. Stroke occurred in 12 atorvastatin patients and 24 placebo patients (p = 0.04)

In addition to the present MIRACL concept, Miller cites the possibility of a laser using oxygen and iodine to achieve about half the wavelength of the hydrogen fluoride combination, or 1.
A meta-analysis of 12 trials of this sort (three of atorvastatin including MIRACL, two of fluvastatin, six of pravastatin, and one of simvastatin) showed no beneficial effect on mortality, MI, or stroke for up to four months.
With the MIRACL experience under its belt, the program is currently developing a laser whose wavelength can be changed in the design phase - a free-electron laser.
Myocardial Ischemia Reduction with Aggressive Cholesterol Lowering (MIRACL) Study Investigators: effects of atorvastatin on early recurrent ischemic events in acute coronary syndromes: the MIRACL study: a randomized controlled trial.
All algorithms are implemented by C language, and our code uses the MIRACL library version 5.
High-dose atorvastatin enhances the decline in inflammatory markers in patients with acute coronary syndromes in the MIRACL study.
ECC primitives in MIRACL library [14] with 160-bit key size are used.
The MIRACL Study demonstrated that atorvastatin treatment during the acute phase of ACS reduced recurrent ischemic events (8).
According to MIRACL [31] achievement, a 512-bit Tate pairing takes 20 ms whereas a 1024-bit prime modular exponentiation takes 8.
Both the user and the server sides make use of the publicly available library MIRACL [25].
