    The leading particle effect was presented quantitatively and economically by the heavy-quark recombination mechanism. It was found that the leading particle effect in charm hadroproduction is an enhancement of the cross section for a charmed hadron in the forward direction of the beam. The D+/D- asymmetry was also found to fit using a single parameter whose value was consistent with a determination from charm photoproduction.
