Palomar and Gillette, which is part of the Procter & Gamble Co., began working on the project in 2003. The latest agreement extends it until January 2008. Under the deal, Gillette will pay Palomar development payments of about $1.2 million, and an additional $300,000 once certain deliverables are completed, Palomar said.
