Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions

5×10(9)pfu adenovirus hepatocyte growth factor was delivered by transendocardial injection in patients with ischemic heart disease into five left ventricular sites once.
Drug: Ad-HGF
5×10(9)pfu adenovirus hepatocyte growth factor was delivered by transendocardial injection into five left ventricular sites.
Other Name: adenovirs hepatocyte growth factor

Detailed Description:
  1. Ischemic heart disease refers to a group of closely related syndromes by an imbalance between the myocardial oxygen demand and the blood supply.
  2. Gene therapy offers an attractive alternative to current pharmacologic therapies and may be beneficial in refractory disease. Gene therapy with hepatocyte growth factor induces angiogenesis, decreases apoptosis and leads to protection in the ischemic heart. In this study, we mainly explore the safety and effects of adenovirus hepatocyte growth factor for the treatment of ischemic heart disease.
