Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a single intracoronary infusion of Ad5FGF-4 is effective in improving exercise capacity measured by exercise treadmill testing, angina functional class, patient symptoms, quality of life, and cardiovascular outcomes. To doses are to be studied, 2.87x10(8) and 2.87x10(9) viral particles, to evaluate the dose-response of Ad5FGF-4. Short-term and long-term safety of Ad5FGF-4 will also be evaluated.
