Should be D.
A----> misses a comma after for example.
B & C ---> out b'coz of being.
E----> been at the end seems awkward. were would have been correct.

a late A.

my problem with D (and C also) is
"too low a drug dosage for it to be effective"

I believe the correct form here is "too low a drug dosage to be effective"
