We investigate the asymptotic behavior of the inelastic electron-nucleon structure functions within the framework of ladder models of the virtual Compton amplitude in the limit | q2 |->oo with w=2q.p/|q2| large and fixed. (q is the electron four-momentum transfer and p the target nucleon momentum.) The leading log-arithmic behavior of the ladder diagrams is obtained by Mellin transform techniques.
