Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Recovery of contractility within previously akinetic areas of the heart (areas without motion/contraction) that have received treatment (cells from the patient's thigh muscle or placebo), and change in left ventricular EF as assessed by echocardiography

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Study Start Date: November 2002
Study Completion Date: April 2007
Primary Completion Date: April 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
