B) had performed experiments in which researchers withheld the medicine necessary to survive syphilis from many African American males in order to learn how the disease progresses, killing dozens of them.

C) had performed experiments on African American males in which researchers killed dozens by receiving the incorrect treatment for syphilis from the researchers so that they could learn how the disease progresses.

D) had performed experiments on African American males in which researchers killed dozens from receiving the incorrect treatment for syphilis from the researchers so that researchers could learn how the disease progresses.

A) had performed experiments in which researchers withheld medicine from African American males with syphilis in order to learn how the disease progresses, and in the process, the researchers had caused the deaths of dozens of men.
Correct. "dozens of men" clearly refers to "African American males". No problem as other choices have.

B) had performed experiments in which researchers withheld the medicine necessary to survive syphilis from many African American males in order to learn how the disease progresses, killing dozens of them.
"them" here could refer to "researchers" or "many African American males"

C) had performed experiments on African American males in which researchers killed dozens by receiving the incorrect treatment for syphilis from the researchers so that they could learn how the disease progresses.
This choice is awkward since it suggests that researchers receive the incorrect treatment from other researchers.

D) had performed experiments on African American males in which researchers killed dozens from receiving the incorrect treatment for syphilis from the researchers so that researchers could learn how the disease progresses.
Same as C

E) had performed experiments in which researchers withheld medicine from African American males with syphilis in order to learn how the disease progresses and causing the deaths of dozens of men.
"causing" here seems to refer back to the whole activity of researchers. However, "and" before "causing" fails this function.

B is incorrect here because of the errorneous "medicine necessary to survive syphilis from many African American males" part. This part changes the meaning of the sentence because it talks about african american males in general and not specifically about African-American males with syphilis.

C and D are wrong because the researchers didn't kill African-American males with syphilis, the experiments did.

E has parallelism error
