Creatine kinase elevation is commonly reported in telbivudine‐treated patients. However, little is known about the relationship between this adverse drug reaction and plasma concentration. In this study, a sensitive, rapid and safe quantitative bioanalytical method has been established by using LC‐MS/MS for the determination of telbivudine in a clinical study of chronic hepatitis B patients. The assay was linear in a dynamic 10–10,000 ng/mL range (r2> 0.999) and total analysis time was 6 min in this method. The validated method was applied to quantitatively determine plasma concentration in chronic hepatitis B patients during long‐term telbivudine treatment. The results revealed that telbivudine concentration in the creatine kinase‐elevated group (707.92–2788.78 ng/mL) was significantly higher than those with normal creatine kinase (412.63–1108.32 ng/mL). This method was adapted for therapeutic drug monitoring.
