We report on our measurement of the inclusive spectrum of positive pions from the reaction $pp\rightarrow \pi^+ + X$ on a CH2 internal target of the ITEP proton synchrotron at $1.5\ GeV/c$ with a missing mass resolution of about $1\ MeV/c^2$. The goal of our experiment was the search for the hypothetical narrow $\pi NN$ resonance ($0.5\ MeV/c^2$ width and a mass of $2.06\ GeV/c^2$) with I(JP)=even(0-), called d'. We do not see any statistically significant d'-signal. The upper limit for d' production cross-section in pp-interactions is near $2\ \mu b$ at $84\%\ C.L.$
