Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intramyocardial injections of adult stem cells in patients with refractory chronic myocardial ischemia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myocardial Ischemia Device: stem cell injection Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a double-blind, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled trial to determine the tolerability, efficacy, safety and dose range of intramyocardial injections of adult autologous CD34+ cells mobilized with granulocyte colony stimulating factor for the reduction of angina episodes in patients with refractory chronic myocardial ischemia.
