Extending the ideas of Koba-Nielsen-Olesen (KNO) and combining them with the data on deep inelastic muon-proton scattering at the cms energy from about 4 up to , we are led to the conclusion that the KNO scaling might reveal oscillations. Data on the scattering of muons on deuterons (while ) as well as on the proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions (in the range of from about 11 up to ) are also compatible with that phenomenon.
