In this letter we show that the behaviour of F_2, at very small x_B, agrees with the behaviour expected from the BFKL evolution equation, when screening corrections are included. We obtain a description which is consistent with the data, however, we require the screening corrections to be relatively large (about a quarter of the total DIS cross section). The relation between the screening corrections and the diffractive DIS cross section is discussed.
