Clinically-driven dose reduction of direct oral anticoagulants in individuals with atrial fibrillation is prevalent worldwide. However, a paucity of evidence to tailor dose selection remained as clinical unmet need. Current doses of anticoagulant were determined largely by landmark clinical trials, in which the enrolled subjects were carefully selected and without major comorbidities. Our study reviewed the relevant real-world studies in specific patient phenotypes, including renal and hepatic diseases, elderly, low body weight, Asians and presence of concomitant drug–drug interactions. Thorough investigations toward the efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants in reduced doses will facilitate substituting current universal approach with individualized prescriptions.
