Abstract: Finite graph products of groups with solvable conjugacy problem and infinite cyclic edge groups are considered. It is shown that the graph product has solvable conjugacy problem if the images of the edge group generators in each vertex group are powers of a common central element , where the group generated by has solvable generalized word problem in .
