An ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC–MS/MS) method was developed to determine the fenofibric acid (FA) in human plasma and applied to a pharmacokinetic study of fenofibrate tablet (Lipanthyl® supra, 160 mg) on Chinese subjects which had not been reported. Bezafibrate was used as an internal standard (IS), and the plasma samples were precipitated by methanol. Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode was used to quantitatively analyzed FA m/z 317.2 → 230.7 and the IS m/z 360.0 → 274.0 in the electrospray ionization (ESI) negative interface. The calibration curves were linear over the range of 50–30,000 ng/mL ( r 2 ≥ 0.996). The intra-day and inter-day precision (coefficient of variation, CV%) was less than 2.7 and 2.5%, respectively. The accuracy (relative error, RE%) ranged from −4.5 to 6.9%. The average recovery was higher than 86.2%, and the matrix effect was between 95.32 and 110.55%. The simple, rapid, and selectivity method was successfully applied to the pharmacokinetic study of fenofibrate tablets on Chinese subjects.
