Abstract: Let R be a star-ring and let $ {R_\dagger }$ denote the set of star-regular elements in R. It is shown that the relation $ a\Delta b$, defined by $ a{a^\ast}a = a{b^\ast}a$, is antisymmetric on $ {R_\dagger }$ provided that the two-term star-cancellation law and the positive-semidefinite axiom hold in R. This includes the star-regular elements of all $ {C^\ast}$-algebras, and in particular those elements in $ {{\mathbf{C}}_{n \times n}}$ and $ B(H)$, the bounded linear transformations on Hilbert space H.
