A is nonsensical
B after as it is repeating the same which is not required, it is verbose
C is also verbose
D is best after as preposition ellipses comes in picture
E again nonsensical

PARALLELISM....

The structure is..
The effect is SAME on x AS on y
SO SAME and AS should be followed by same phrase
D IS CORRECT

A study suggests that in several cases of treatment of neurological disorders, the effect would be the same on someone consuming placebos as a person consuming pills with medicinal value.

A. placebos as a person--> wrong comparison
B. placebos as it would be on a person
C. placebos as it would on a person
D. placebos as on a person --> correct
E. placebos, just as it would on a person

Explanation:
Think simple:
1. The effect is same on me as on you.
2. The effect on me is same as that on you.

It is clear case of parallelism, where parallel elements are " on someone consuming placebos " and "a person consuming pills with medicinal value"

A. Incorrect, because elements are not parallel. Preposition "on" is missing.
B. Incorrect, because it changes the parallel entity. Now its clause to clause which is not intended out here because of word "same" where from comparison starts.
C. Incorrect, same as B
D. Correct, it rectify missing preposition "on" in this option to make the entity parallel
E. Incorrect, same as B

A incorrectly compares ‘effect’ to ‘person’.
B is wordier than it needs to be.
So is C
D is the best.
E doesn’t make any sense at all.
