Based on Local-Group tests of dark-matter Concordance Cosmology: Towards a new paradigm for structure formation : Pavel Kroupa, Benoit Famaey, Klaas S. de Boer, et al., 2010, Astronomy and Aastrophysics, in pressNote the completely independent Nature Review by James Peebles and Adam Nusser which comes to rather similar conclusions: , 2010, Nature, 465, 565
The recent study by Knebe et al. (2010, MNRAS) suggests this not to be the case. They write:
"The most remarkable outcome of this study though remains that the inclusion of gas physics has no affect on the (DM) shapes (and hence radial alignment) of subhaloes in cosmological simulations of structure formation."
So it seems that baryonic physics would not really have an important
effect on the conclusions, but further research is clearly useful to
further sharpen our understanding.
