In this review we present comparison of pharmacokinetics of novel oral anticoagulants (NOAC) dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban, principles of selection of a regimen of their dosing for phase III clinical trials in patients with atrial fibrillation. Multiplicity of administration of NOAC depends on required level of anticoagulation, ability to maintain anticoagulation for 24 hours, relationship between minimal and maximal levels of equilibrium concentrations, efficacy and safety. Once a day administration of some drugs of this group is reasonable from positions of clinical pharmacology. It can provide not only better adherence to treatment but greater safety relative to development of bleeding.
