E, unquestionably. The passive voice makes it a well known statement of the sciences.

I will go with 'A'
Because we are comparing kuru against the 'strangest & most insidiuous of all the diseases known' and not just to any 'known disease' as in 'E'.

I am not sure if I came across correctly, so let me try it differently.
We are comparing Kuru against a subset of all the known disease.

It should be (E).

Kuru, one of the strangest and most insidious diseases [that are] known, is no longer a major problem in New Guinea.

I would choose E. Simplify the sentence you'll get:
Kuru, one of the deseases known, is ....
When you see "one of" you know it is one of a group of things which should be represented by a plaural noun.

For A, it simplify to this:
Kuru, one of the strangest [something] of the diseases known, ...
You need a noun after the word "strangest" otherwise "strangest" is missing a word to modify.

E is short and precise.
All other option choices contain "of..."
If this question is old, I wonder whether OG will contain such question.
