SimThyr is a continuous simulator for pituitary-thyroid homeostasis. Pre-compiled Software is available for Mac OS X, Mac OS Classic and Windows. SimThyr was developed with Lazarus / Free Pascal (Mac OS X and Windows) or THINK Pascal (Mac OS Classic), respectively. Source code is provided for all supported platforms and may also be used in order to compile SimThyr for additional platforms.
In order to install the program on Mac or Windows computers, simply drag the application file from the zip or BinHex package to the desired location on your file system. SimThyr doesn't come with and doesn't require an installer. It may also be used as a portable application that is started from USB sticks, CDs, server volumes or other media. On Linux, please download the source code and compile it for your processor and operating system with Lazarus / Free Pascal.
SimThyr 3.0 for Mac supports Mac OS X 10.4 or newer on systems with either Intel or PPC processors. SimThyr 3.0 for Windows has been developed for Windows XP and was successfully tested also on Windows 2000 and Windows 7. Mac OS Classic is supported by the legacy version SimThyr 2.0 only. In order to use SimThyr on Linux please download the source code and compile it for your processor and operating system with Lazarus / Free Pascal.
Simulation scenarios, e.g. containing a set of structure parameters in certain thyroid disorders, may be stored as XML files and reused, e.g. for talks or educational purposes (SimThyr 3.0 or newer only).
