This is a pretty freaky concept, I do not think I could cope with this, It makes me shudder just thinking about it.
It also asks some moral questions regarding extending human life beyond normal peramaters.

There is no necessity here though, just egos at work.
Transplanting a head is pointless imo because all they would end up with is a vegetable that is so freaked out at having an alien torso and limbs "it" would die from the shock, physical rejection or be a gibbering wreck at least.
Just an overpaid scientists with a god complex and an obscene budget.
This is not the way to cure people.

What is that?
Immune or ejection?
perhaps the term you're looking for is "immune rejection"
2 years ain't much. Isn't it said that 'military' tech is 40 years ahead of us?
Perhaps Jobs isn't dead. Maybe he just swapped heads.

Too bad there is no cure for dementia. The brain would still age and fail.

It won't be much longer before all of the matter in your brain can be mapped with nano-bots then duplicated with a software program. Once your brain is essentially artifically cloned without using your DNA a second "paused" identical version of your consciousness will exist on a hard disk. 3D printers will then someday in the future be able to re-create an exact living replica of you. It's the next best thing to being immortal. When that replica dies you can have another one made who contains all the "data" or "memories" that you had and who would be in the exact same physical condition of you as when the duplication was made.
