Never trust a news article that mis-spells "and".

In all seriousness though, wouldn't the foreign cells be killed by immune response?

They might not be, for one the immune system in the brain is weak at best, it is sometimes considered to be an immune privileged system due to blood brain barrier and other mechanisms, also if one wanted to eliminate immune rejection altogether then any number of immune suppressive drugs are available. Even if these experiments were real (highly doubtful), the cells would most likely just wither and die without the proper connections/growth factors/stimulation/nutrients etc that keep normal brain cells alive.
