Additional Information

Official title A Phase II Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of a Single Dose of JVS-100 Administered by Endomyocardial Injection to Cohorts of Adults With Ischemic Heart Failure
Description 90 subjects with ischemic cardiomyopathy will be randomized to receive a single dose of 15 or 30 mg of JVS-100 or matching placebo. Subjects will be randomized 1:1:1 to receive either placebo, 15 mg or 30 mg of JVS-100. Subjects will be monitored overnight for 18-24 hours post dose and have scheduled visits at 3 days post-injection for safety evaluations. All subjects will be scheduled for follow-up visits at approximately 30 days (1 month), 120 days (4 months), and 360 days (12 months) to assess safety and cardiac function.
