Purpose of Study 

A randomized, double-blind placebo controlled study to determine the safety and efficacy of Angiogenic Cell Precursors (ACPs) in relieving symptoms of Critical Limb Ischemia in patients treated with standard of care and with no surgical revascularization option. It is assumed that the ACP-treated group will have a lower amputation and death rate as compared to the placebo group. Other hemodynamic, imaging and clinical parameters will also be compared between the two groups. Quality of life assessments will also be performed.
