E should be it.

A substance derived from the Madagascar periwinkle, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients, is cultivated in China as part of a program to integrate traditional herbal medicine into a contemporary system of health care.

(A) A substance derived from the Madagascar periwinkle, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,
- OUT substance can not be cultivated. misplaced modifier.

(B) A derivative, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients, of the Madagascar periwinkle,

- OUT, can not split the noun phrase or subject..

(C) A Madagascar periwinkle derivative, which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,

- OUT, this also changes the meaning like A does.

(D) The Madagascar periwinkle has a derivative which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients, that

- OUT Restrictive clause which should always have comma before it. this choice also is weird..

(E) The Madagascar periwinkle, a derivative of which has proved useful in decreasing mortality among young leukemia patients,

- Good

E - Only this choice has The Madagascar periwinkle as the subject, which follows the construction of the remaining portion of the sentence.
