More than 50 boys were infected with HIV after being secretly enrolled in a trial of “polluted” blood products, the Infected Blood Inquiry has been told. The boys were all pupils at Treloars College in Hampshire, a specialist disability school that offered places to haemophiliacs in the 1970s and 1980s. Of more than 80 haemophiliacs at the school who were given contaminated blood products as part of their treatment, just 16 are still alive. Ade Goodyear, one of the survivors, told the inquiry his records show he was among a group of 50 boys enrolled in an eight-month trial of a blood plasma.
