> Cryonics related research never gets published in top journals no matter its quality, so this is what you would expect.

In this case it's Aubrey de Grey's own journal, which is getting just a bit incestuous.

Unreviewed or barely-reviewed papers are common these days (e.g. arXiv); this paper's peer review really just isn't up to the peer review standards expected in biology, but that doesn't mean it isn't an interesting result in any case. I'm very glad someone did in fact do this obvious experiment at last.
