of course yes....our stomach (gaster) periodically regenerate its epithelial cells. The same thing also happen in liver, intestine, uterus (in women) etc. except for muscle cells and neurons.
PS: in this term it related with cell regeneration, not organ regeneration...you have to differ the difference for both regenerations which is of course doesn't happen to regenerate a new organ (in human)... :lol:

another form of regenerations is the regeneration of the tail in some amphibians (but it's not human physiology though) but nonetheless a part of the developmental biology which could be useful to understand mechanisms of regenration in humans.

not amphibians sdekivit, reptiles. Some lizards can grow back their tails.

That's OK. Everyone makes mistakes.
