We compare the pT dependence of pion, kaon and proton production cross sections in the central rapidity region in e+e- annihilation events and in proton-proton collisions at ISR energies. We find similarities both in the pT dependence of cross sections and in the particle composition as a function of pT, in agreement with the hypothesis of a universal mechanism of particle production.
