The hadroproduction of heavy quarks is studied in the kinematic regime in which √s is very much greater than the mass of the produced heavy quark. We introduce a modification of the normal Lipatov equation which allows a factorization between the short-distance and long-distance physics. Numerical results are provided using the cross section for b-quark production as an example.
