   V3 OR >1 mm in any other contiguous precordial leads or the limb leads [for both men
   and women]) with PCI (bare metal or drug-eluting stent) and Thrombolysis in Myocardial
   Infarction flow grade 2 or 3 occurring >2 hours and <24 hours after symptom onset.

   5. LVEF ≤45% obtained by cECHO performed within 36 hours post-stent placement.

   6. Receiving standard medical therapy for post-MI treatment, according to local
   procedures and Principal Investigator discretion

   7. Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at
   Screening and an additional negative urine pregnancy test prior to the first dose of
   IMP unless regulated differently by national legislation.

   8. Sexually active female subjects of childbearing potential (i.e., women who are not
   postmenopausal or who have not had a bilateral oophorectomy, hysterectomy, or tubal
   ligation) and all male subjects (who have not been surgically sterilized by vasectomy)
   must agree to use effective contraception during the study.

Exclusion criteria

   8. Treatment with any DPP4 inhibitors (e.g., alogliptin, linagliptin, vildagliptin,
   saxagliptin, sitagliptin) or G-CSF medication (e.g., filgrastim, lenograstim,
   pegfilgrastim, lipegfilgrastim) within 4 months prior to Randomization.

   9. Contraindication to treatment with filgrastim, including known allergy to filgrastim
   or other G-CSF medication.

10. Anemia defined as hemoglobin <9 g/dL prior to Randomization.

11. Thrombocytosis (platelets >500 k/µL).

12. Known positive serology for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus

13. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) concentrations >3 times the upper limit of normal (ULN)
   or bilirubin >2 x ULN prior to Randomization, according to local laboratory

15. Current fever greater than 101.4 °F (38.6 °C) or recent systemic infection within 2
   weeks prior to Randomization.

16. Contraindication to cMRI procedure, including prior implantable cardioverter
   defibrillator placement, known reaction to gadolinium, claustrophobia,
   non-MRI-compatible, cochlear implant, morbid obesity, or presence of ferromagnetic
   material including shunts, shrapnel, penile prostheses, or blood vessel coil.

   mg/day prednisolone or equivalent.

19. Significant renal impairment defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate <45
   mL/min/1.73 m2, using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation.

20. Active neoplasm requiring surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation within the prior 12
   months (subjects with a history of malignancy who have undergone curative resection or
   otherwise not requiring treatment for at least 12 months prior to Screening with no
   detectable recurrence are allowed).

21. Malignant hematological disease, i.e., chronic myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic

22. History of cerebrovascular accident or transient ischemic attack in the past 6 months.

23. History of pneumonia in the last 4 weeks.

24. History of any significant medical or psychiatric disorder that in the opinion of the
   investigator would make the subject unsuitable for participation in the study.

25. Treatment with an investigational drug within 30 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is
   longer) or treatment with an investigational biologic drug within 6 weeks prior to

   intervention (participation in observational studies and/or registry studies is
