The AxesLabel option does not work because you have set 
Axes-> False. Since you have set Frame -> True you can however
use the FrameLabel option to create the labels you want.

To change the font for the Tick mark labels (and the default for 
entire plot) you can use the DefaultFont option.

Here is an example, based on your code, to illustrate both of
these options.


In[44]:=
    ans[x_] := Sin[x]

In[45]:=
    data = Table[ {x,Cos[x]}, {x, 0, 2, .3}];

In[46]:=
    xlab=FontForm[ ToString[Concentration  mM],{"Helvetica",12}];

In[47]:=
    ylab=FontForm[ ToString[Relaxation Rate  s Superscript[-1]]
                                ,{"Helvetica",12}];

In[48]:=
    fig11=Plot[ans[x],{x,0,2},
                          Frame->True, Axes->False,
                          AspectRatio->1, PlotRange->All,
                          PlotLabel->pltxt2,
                          FrameLabel->{xlab,ylab},
                          DisplayFunction->Identity];

In[49]:=
    fig22=ListPlot[data,
                          Frame->True, Axes->False,
                          AspectRatio->1, PlotRange->All,
                          DisplayFunction->Identity];

In[50]:=
    Show[fig11,fig22,DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction]
Out[50]=
    -Graphics-

In[51]:=
    ?DefaultFont
    DefaultFont is an option for graphics functions which
       specifies the default font to use for text. DefaultFont
       -> {"font", size} specifies the name and size of the font
       to use. The default setting is DefaultFont :>
       $DefaultFont.

In[52]:=
    Show[fig11,fig22,
            DefaultFont -> {"Helvetica",12},
            DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction]
Out[52]=
    -Graphics-

I hope this helps.
